Halloween is the perfect season to get a little silly and a little spooky. If you’re a mom on the go, we understand that you may not have a lot of free time (who are we kidding, we know you have zero free time), but you still want to get into the Halloween spirit. No worries! We’ve picked 3 super simple and insanely quick DIY crafts that are easy to do with the kids and will also give your home that hint of Halloween you’ve been searching for!
These Mummy Jars are easy as 1,2,3!
Take the lid off of the jars and being by wrapping the gauze around the base of the jar. We put a few drops of craft glue at the beginning of our roll, just to make sure it would stay in place. Roll the gauze all the way up to the top and back down again, depending on how long your roll is. Placement is not a huge factor because some uneven edges make the jar look more mummy-ish!
Add another drop of glue at the end of the roll to make sure it stays together and finish by gluing two eyes to the exterior. You can easily fill the jars with candy or use a battery-operated tealight candle to transform the jar into a luminary. Seriously… it’s that easy and absolutely adorable!
This project is great for a toddler because it is as simple as glue… and glue… and glue some more! One tip we suggest is putting the picture inside the frame before you begin, just so you won’t have to worry about taking the back off while the glue is drying.
Begin by cutting white fabric into 8 inch squares. Place the fabric over the top of the sucker and tie a ribbon where the sucker meets the stick. All that’s left is giving your ghoul a cute face and just like magic, you are finished!
