My Mummy Luminary

I made this last year, not sure if I shared it or not...


I started with a glass hurricane from the Dollar Store.

I frosted it with spray paint and then painted some black circles for the eyes.


I took some medical gauze (the kind on a roll).  And I shredded and ripped it to make it look funky and old.  Then, I painted Mod Podge all over the vase and wrapped the gauze all around the vase.  I painted more Mod Podge over the gauze to help it stick to the vase.


When it dried, I painted some yellow circles on the black to make it look spooky and placed a candle inside.


I think this was my favorite Halloween decoration last year, especially since I made it myself.  Didn't cost much to make either...Gotta love it.
