Making Mummies...

Had the Grandbabies on Saturday night.  
Once I had Mariah J  down for the night, Dylan and I put together
Mummy candles made out of jars for Halloween.

 

 First we coated the glass jars with Mod Podge...a little messy when a 3 year old is helping but he actually did a great job. 


 He liked painting the glue onto the jars.   Then we wrapped the jars with cheese cloth and coated the cheese cloth with more mod podge.  Dylan liked doing this until his fingers started sticking together and then it was up to Mom Mom to finish wrapping the cheesecloth on the last 2 jars.

 

 Dylan was so serious when he picked out which eyes went on which jar.  He inspected several sets before finding just the right ones.


 We then added the small battery lights that flicker like candles.


 And the finished project...3 Mummy Candles for Halloween.
