The Mummy!!!

Can you count to 3?  If so… you’ll be able to create this Mummy in a breeze! Step 1: Find a vase. I happened to have a dollar store vase: Step 2: Wrap gauze roller bandage or cheese cloth around the vase.  You can use hot glue to make sure it stays put.. or just wrap it tightly (that’s what I did): Step 3: Your Mummy needs eyes.  You can hot glue eyes or insert them in between the gauze. Voilà: You can use your Mummy as a vase.. or a candle holder :)

I was walking through the dollar store with my sister, when I came across the perfect storage baskets for my makeup.
