How to Make DIY Mummy Mason Jars
Step 1: Secure the Ribbon
Begin by using hot glue to affix the loose end of your ribbon to the jar. Alternatively, you can use tape for this step.
Step 2: Wrap, Layer, and Secure
Wrap the ribbon around the jar, ensuring it covers the entire surface. This is where you can get creative! Feel free to layer different colored or textured ribbons for added depth and variety. Once you’ve wrapped it to your satisfaction, cut the ribbon and use glue or tape to secure it in place.
Step 3: Googly Eyes Galore!
Give your mummy personality by adding googly eyes. If your googly eyes come with adhesive backing, simply peel off the cover and stick them onto the jar. If not, use hot glue to secure them in place. Feel free to get whimsical with the number and placement of eyes!
Step 4: Oozing Slime Finishing Touches
For that extra eerie touch, use glitter glue to add oozing slime details around the jar. This step not only enhances the spooky factor but also adds a fun, textured dimension to your mummy creation.
Step 5: Illuminate Your Mummy
Place a battery-operated tealight candle or fairy lights inside the jar to bring your mummy to life in the dark. Watch as the flickering light casts hauntingly beautiful shadows through the wrapped ribbon.
Congratulations, you’ve transformed simple Mason jars into adorable mummy masterpieces! These DIY creations are perfect for adorning your Halloween festivities or adding a touch of spook to your everyday decor. Have fun experimenting with different ribbon textures and eye placements. Happy crafting!
