DIY Mummy Bowls! Create these quick and easy Hallowe’en decorations using the Cricut Explore and Cricut vinyl!
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.

How to Make your DIY Mummy Bowls
Step-by-step Tutorial for your DIY Mummy Bowls
You start by logging into the Cricut Design Space, and designing eyes for your DIY 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 Air 2.
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 DIY Mummy Bowls, or candles, or spooky toys, or party favours. I love DIY’s with so many options!
