Mummy Luminaries

I saw these on Pinterest, repinned them, and then made them myself.  I think they are so adorable! And, one of the things I love about them is that you can recycle old jars, worn t-shirts, old sheets or other material.  I used some small canning jars I had and my son's old undershirts.  Actually one of my little mummies is made from gauze I had and I added some tshirt strips to him.

We had just sent all of our empty glass jars off to the recyclying center so I actually had to go out to Michaels to buy a few large mason jars.  Now every time we finish a mayo or pickle jar, I'm conviscating them for my craft supplies!

I had planned on lining my front porch steps with these little guys on Trick Or Treat night (last night), but Mother Nature decided to rain on everyone's parade, so to speak.  However, I think they gave a nice seasonal flare to my indoor stairs in the foyer.

Here is a list of supplies I used:

- Empty jars of different sizes.

- White material ripped into strips.

- hot glue gun

- flickering plastic tea lights(battery operated)
