DIY Mummy Bowls

Mummy bowls title

It’s October 1st! Time to start thinking about all things black, orange, and spooky!
Aside from the carved pumpkins on the doorstep, we’ve never decorated anything for Hallowe’en before. I figured it couldn’t hurt to add a few little spooky touches this year to get my little girl (& husband!) in the mood! I LOVE to decorate, but I wanted some quick & easy projects, so the first decorations I chose were these DIY Mummy Bowls

Materials needed:

Glass Bowl
Black Vinyl
10 ft. White Tulle
Cricut Explore One

You start by logging into the Cricut Design Space, and designing eyes for your mummy bowls. All I did was insert circle shapes and place them as I wanted them. The outer circles were 1.5″ (1″ for smaller bowl) and the inner circles were 0.75″ (0.5″). When I was ready, I printed on Black Vinyl using my Cricut Explore One.

Next, I cut all of my tulle down so that it was only 2-3″ wide, and in very long strips. Then I wrapped and wrapped those bowls up! It doesn’t have to look too neat – I say the messier the better! Once I had a few layers, I stuck my vinyl eyes to the tulle, and then I kept wrapping. I liked the idea of the eyes being slightly hidden in the tulle.

That was it!
An hour later I had a few perfectly spooky Hallowe’en decorations for the home!


You could easily put candy in these, or candles, or spooky toys, or party favours. I love DIY’s with so many options!
