I love how this mummy is SMILING at you! It was totally on accident, but I love it! It seriously looks like a cartoon character or something. But so fun for Halloween, right?!

Mummy Candy Bowl Tutorial


  • Cheese Cloth
  • Halloween Candy (duh)
  • Glass Fish Bowls
  • Large Googly Eyes
  • Hot Glue Gun


  1. Cut cheese cloth into 2″ strips and hot glue around the glass fish bowl to create a mummy look. If you’d like, you could use paint or ink to add a distressed look to the white cheese cloth.


2. Hot glue googly eyes in place and you are good to go with the cutest Halloween Candy Bowl around!
