Mummy Candy Pots

Serve your Halloween candy in these mummy-wrapped flowerpots.

Scare up some treats, then stash them in these easy-to-make candy dishes. The black eyes add an extra spooky touch. Ordinary terra-cotta flowerpots, muslin strips, and some acrylic paint are about all you'll need. You can even ask your kids to pitch in and help.

What You Need:

  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • 12 1-x-36-inch strips of muslin
  • Terra-cotta pot (6 1/2 inches in diameter and 5 1/2 inches tall)
  • 2 round black beads
  • Stencil brush
  • Fluorescent acrylic paint: hot green or orange
  • Paper towel
  • Candy


Spot-glue the end of a muslin strip to the rim of the terra-cotta pot. Wrap the strip around the pot, spot-gluing in place as needed.

Continue covering the pot with muslin strips, gluing the beginning of each new strip to the end of the previous one. Occasionally twist the muslin during the wrapping process to add dimension, and spot-glue the twist to the pot.

When the pot is completely covered (leave the bottom unwrapped), make a brow by wrapping more strips around the top of the pot. Wrap additional strips around the bottom of the face to give the mummy the appearance of a concealed nose and mouth. Add back beads for eyes.

Dip a stencil brush into the fluorescent paint. Dab the brush on a paper towel to remove any excess paint, and lightly brush back and forth on the muslin until the pot is covered. Allow paint to dry.

Fill the finished mummy pot with candy.
