and are sure to add an extra dose of fun to your Halloween table!
Good morning, everyone! I’m so excited for today – not just because I get to share another fun Halloween project with you – but because I get to be part of this amazing Halloween Blog Hop with so many other talented bloggers! I hope you will stay to link up your latest Halloween projects below. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on! I’ve been busy creating fun and simple Halloween crafts, like the Spooky Spider Plates and Funny Pumpkin Pails I already shared with you, and I have one more craft for you today: these adorable Mummy-Wrapped Utensils!
I’m a big fan of wrapping utensils for parties, showers, and get togethers. I love the special little touch it adds to the table. So naturally, when I started thinking about a Halloween party, I knew that wrapped utensils would be part of it! And what more fitting way to wrap them than to look like mummies? Of course!! I started by picking up a few simple materials: black plastic utensils, white paper dinner napkins, cheese cloth, candy eyeballs, and edible “glue”. I stacked the silverware (knife, fork, spoon), wrapped it in the napkin with the bottom corner folded up to secure it, and then re-wrapped it with strips of cheese cloth. I left just a small opening for the eyes and secured them with Wilton Cookie Icing. Voila! Fun & simple Mummy-Wrapped Utensils! Here’s the complete tutorial:
- Black plastic utensils (I found mine at Dollar Tree, but any party store would also carry them)
- White dinner napkins (I used Chinet)
- Cheese cloth, cut into 1 1/2 inch strips
- 1 package candy eyeballs (I used Wilton)
- Edible “glue” (I used Wilton Candy Icing, but melted white chocolate would also work)
1. Begin by stacking the silverware with the knife on the bottom and the spoon on top.
2. Place the silverware stack on top of the napkin, with one corner of the napkin at the tip of the knife and another corner directly below the base of the handle.
3. Fold the bottom corner of the napkin on top of the spoon handle, then fold the left side of the napkin on top of the silverware and roll until secure.
4. Starting at the bottom, re-wrap the utensils with strips of cheese cloth. When you get to the end of a strip, overlap the end with a new strip and continue wrapping.
5. Leave a small space for eyes; continue wrapping all the way to the top of the spoon.
6. Use small dabs of icing or melted chocolate to secure eyes in place. Lay flat to dry.
