Posted on Last updated: /

A great addition to any Halloween-themed office or study. Easy-to-follow instructions for making a Halloween mummy holder complete with a pesky spider.

Let's make this easy Halloween Mummy Holder with an irritating spider climbing on it. Perfect to decorate your study or work table during Halloween

Remember the yarn wrapped recycle pencil holder I made? I used the same concept to make this mummy holder. Instead of yarn, this time I wrap the pencil holder with torn white fabric strips after inspired by this post with the googly eyes. The mummy holder is perfect to use as a pencil holder, napkin holder, cutlery holder, or treat holder during Halloween.

This mummy holder is easy to make and kids can help in tearing the fabric into strips and wrapping it up. You can always adapt this method to wrap around a clean used food can or container.
