Super Simple Mummy Jam Jar Laterns

Super Simple Mummy Jam Jar Laterns

 

These little Mummy Jam Jar Laterns are sooo super simple, that children of all ages can give them a go. Perfect for Halloween, or as a decoration for a spooky party.  They’re so simple to make that when we first made them a few years ago, I just included them in one of my Halloween crafts round up posts.  However, after digging out my collection of previously made Mummy Jam Jar Laterns for the 3rd year in a row, I realised that they really deserved a post of their own!
