Mummy Eye Wreath

Last year while making my Mummy Pumpkin,  I used dollar store gauze and eyeballs.  When I was at the store recently I picked some more with the idea to make a mummy themed wreath.

The mummy wreath  is simple to make.  I used the dollar store straw wreath, but you can use any type of wreath form.   You can find white goggle eyes in the craft aisle.  I found the color eyes at JoAnn crafts for just a few cents more.

I used one roll of gauze and covered the form.

Use glue to attach sets of eyeballs around the wreath.  I made mine on the simple side, but you could use a lot more eyeballs if you would like.  

Peek-A-Boo, I see you!!

One the eyes were dry (I used Elmers, but hot glue would work too), I used a second roll of gauze and wrapped the wreath again.  I made sure to cover parts of the eyes, but made sure they peeked through.

I wasn't really sure to use for a bow.  None of my ribbons looked quite right.  I decided to use a third roll of gauze and made a messy bow that looked like it could have been from a mummy.    I did not dirty the guaze to give it an old look, but that could easily be done if desired.

I will be posting my mummy wreath at these wonderful linky parties HERE!
