It’s that time of year when the scent of candy and Halloween are in the air. What is it about Halloween that makes it so much fun? The candy? Dressing up in costumes? Funny decorations? Scary decorations? Fog machines? Candy? I’m going with candy, specifically gauze wrapped candy bars. And best of all, they’re frightfully easy to make.
You’ll want to get the adhesive gauze to make this easy enough for younger children to make because the gauze just sticks to itself. Of course, you can use regular gauze if you prefer. You’ll want a flat candy bar or pack of gum. I prefer the way the Hershey candy bar came out since it’s wrapper is dark brown (thanks, J., for bringing the Hershey bars to our crafting day), but any flat candy bar will work. And googly eyes are the key to the cuteness of this mummy bar.
Simply wrap the gauze around the candy bar. If you have regular gauze, just use a couple of pieces of double stick tape to keep the gauze in place. Cut a small piece of black card stock for the eyes and glue the googly eyes to the card stock (we used a small piece of double stick tape instead of glue). Use double stick tape to adhere the eyes to the mummy bar, tucking the top edge of the cardstock under the bottom edge of the gauze.
