Spooky Mummy Tealights

This will be the last of my Halloween crafts for the year and with that in mind I've made it quick and cheap!!

Completed candle holders

You will need

- A couple of empty glass jars
- PVA glue (£1.00 @Poundland)
- Paint brush
- Plate or bowl for the glue
- A bandage (20p @ Wilko)
- Scissors
- Wiggle eyes (£1.00 @ Wilko)

Equipment listed

First squeeze a small amount of PVA into the bowl and use the brush to paint some on to the glass jar.

Then take one end of the bandage and place it on to the glue, holding on for a short time to ensure it is stuck to the jar.

Wrap the bandage around the jar a few times, cutting off any of the remainder with the scissors when you're done.

Next, chose a pair of wiggle eyes and stick those to the wrapped jar.

Add tea lights to the inside and you're done!!
