Illuminate your front porch this Halloween with these easy DIY cheesecloth mummy lanterns.
Hey crafty friends! Are you following Spooktacular September over at eighteen25? I absolutely adore those girls and look forward to their spooktacular september every year. A few weeks ago I shared this mummy lantern project and in case you missed it I’m sharing a quick tutorial today on how to make your own.
Do you have a traditional theme you decorate with every year? Classic black and white is my all-time favorite for Halloween. Last year I had a black and white glam theme that I decorated with and loved it! I tend to stay away from the creepy/gore Halloween decorations and gravitate towards glittery pumpkins. I also enjoy cute, kid-friendly Halloween decorations like the mummy lanterns I’m sharing today. This year I’m lighting up our walkway with cheesecloth mummy vases in various sizes. Just a note: I used a candle for photography purposes only. The flameless tea lights I purchased had a color changing flicker thing going on and since these babies won’t be making an appearance at the next big rave anytime soon I stuck with classic white lighting. ;)
tacky glue or hot glue
Step one: cut your cheesecloth into 3-4 inch strips. I ripped mine so that it would fray along the edges.
Step two: Use tacky glue (or hot glue for longer lasting) to wrap the cheesecloth along the vase. Be very careful if using hot glue since the glue may seep through.
Step three: glue on the eyes and you’re done!
