Penny’s Tips Volume 81

Hi everyone! I have a fun craft to show you today.

It is super easy. You just wrap a jar with gauze and add googly eyes. You can add a battery operated candle inside too. You can wrap up anything to look like a mummy.

Rosie, it is my day to post, my fans are here to see me.

  Turns out you were right, you can wrap anything up to look like a mummy.

Now that she is out of the way, I can get to show you my craft.  You can make a ghost with cheesecloth, glue, a cup, a pencil and a small styrofoam ball- googly eyes too.

All you do is thin the glue out with some water. Then you poke a pencil into the styrofoam ball and set it in the cup. Cut a piece of cheesecloth, big enough to drape over the ball/cup with some draping on the table. Soak it in the glue mix then spread it over the top of the ball and let it dry. Wen it dries, pull it off the ball and it will stand alone. Glue some eyes on it and you are done.

  1. I think the gauze wrapped jar with googly eyes is darling! The cheesecloth ghost is cute too. The googly eyes are the thing! They give them a personality and life… Ha! Thanks for the tips!

  2. Oooh we like both of these ideas! I should make some of those ghosts for our Halloween village.

  3. Excellent crafts!
    Since I’m currently reading a series written about Egyptologists during The Victorian Era, mummies seem very appropriate.

  4. I’m guessing I could do these crafts too. Maybe. Way cute.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  5. Penny, we got a big laugh out of what you did to Rosie. But you both had great ideas for those Halloween crafts.
