Halloween Mason Jar Mummy Candles
If you are a fan of crafting for Halloween, this one is a lot of fun to make and display. The kids loved helping with this craft and like the way it looks in the window when it gets dark outside. Our DIY Halloween mason jar luminaries are so cute and they are easy to make! Check out the mummy jars tutorial below:
Materials needed for these Halloween candle jars:
- Mason jars
- 1 roll of gauze (2 in. x 4 yds.)
- Googly eyes, 2 per mummy
- Flameless tea light candles
- Clear drying craft or school glue
This Halloween mason jars DIY project is simple, we had a lot of fun making these together. Since mason jars are made of glass, please be sure to supervise your children while making this craft. Let’s get started on this fun Halloween mummy craft!
Step 1: Wrap the mason jar lantern craft in gauze and secure
Unravel the roll of gauze and dab a few dots of glue on the end. Stick it onto the side of your mason jars at an angle, press, and hold for about 30 seconds. Wrap the gauze securely around the jar about 3 – 5 times, making sure to follow the angle and cover the whole mason jar, mummy style.
When you’ve made it back around to the first glue site, cut the gauze and dot some glue on the end. Press and hold firmly for 30 seconds, be sure you have both your start and finish glued onto the same side of the jar. This will be the backside of the mummy.
Step 2: Add googly eyes and a flameless candle
Turn the jar to the front and spread out the gauze into the desired fashion. Glue on two googly eyes wherever you want them and let the mummy dry. When you’re ready, add the flameless tea light candles and set them in a window or outside on the porch and admire!
Step 3: Set them outside at dusk and admire your Halloween DIY!
Here’s how the Halloween mason jar mummies looked during the day:

REALLY cute! I’d just use tape so that the gauze could come off and the jars reused.
Those turned out super cute, Deanna! I like them both at night and during the day.
