I know it seems early, but I always like to get a jump on my project for the holidays, whether it be for the fall or Christmas. Once the school schedule starts, I know my schedule gets busy and my stack of "to do" projects gets harder to tackle. This Mummy Can is so cute and very easy to make. I bought the smaller, empty paint can at Home Depot for a few dollars. All I did was wrapped gauze around the can and secured it with glue. I punched out circles for his eyes. I tucked the eyes into the gauze but used glue to adhere them to the gauze to make them secure. To finish him off I sponged some brown ink on the gauze to make him look aged. I like to fill these cans with candy, cookies, or some sort of goodies for neighbors, friends, teachers, etc at Halloween...a simple, cute gift, that even the kids can help make!
