Halloween Mummy Holder

October 16, 2011 /
mummy pencil holder


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.

Perfect! Mummies. Love 'em. They are great for the bit of decoration for a teacher's desk, or an office desk. On my Holloween to do list! THanks
