Well on top of postponing our party for this year it appears we have decided to back burner the "Silent Night Deadly Night" theme altogether (or at least till 2022,,,dang that seems so far away lol), thanks to these awesome murals I found for CHEAP on ebay

Bare with me as I get used to this new format (which I might add I HATE lol)

Anyway, so I know it's super early considering this theme won't take place till 2020 however I thought it was a great way to stay on top of stuff coming to stores (so please if you see anything Egyptian theme related please give me a heads up :) ). Enclosed are some pics of a few items I've already been working on as well as a couple of items I've been lucky enough to grab along the way. The mummy mask is from oriental trading he was just under $50 but well worth it and the mummy hands, which I plan to use for lifesize mummys, came from @home for $10 a set.

The cat mummies and the cane thing are just simple mache and the scarabs though not finished yet (they still need their legs) were made with foam easter eggs. The scarabs were super easy, but time consuming, and though I do not have the link at the moment I will make sure to share that later.

The vases are just some upcycled items I had and the crates are from our pirate theme made from cardboard boxes with foam board attached to mimic wood.

Just realized I forgot to post about my scarab mold. My thought behind this mold (beyond being absolutely fabulous) was that it could be used to make a paper pulp mold. With that I plan on making about 35-40 scarabs and using them in a tempt your fate game.

My vision is to make a foam panel that fits into a doorway mimicking the scarab wall from The Mummy. Guests will use a little tool and pry the scarab out of the panel (it will b held in place with double sided tape to tissue paper). Once they have removed the scarab they will b able to see their fate (small bottle of alcohol, egyptian trinket, etc) like an adult version of the kids punch game (pic attatched).

I really hope this comes out cause I think it will b a lot of fun and a great addition to my decor 🎃

Saw this little gem on another post and at just $9 I had to add it to my collection. It's just a cheap hollow plastic costume dagger but I think it will look incredible in one of my vinettes 🎃 Super happy with this purchase (found on ebay)🧡🧡🧡
Good size too...22.5"

Check out StrumpetStencils on Etsy if you are needing some nice stencils. She’s got some Egyptian symbols and a cool winged scarab (amongst many other Halloween type stencils ). I’m getting the crop circle and modern mystic stencils to decorate one of my props in progress.

Thank you so much bluesjumper, I've actually been looking for some stencils for my chest so I will definitely check her out
I also plan to stencil on my wood chest which will be left outside. Were you going to use outdoor latex paint?

All of our stuff is indoor only so most likely I will just use craft paint but I might add a spray sealer just to add a slight sheen. We rarely decorate the outside of our home as here in Missouri the weather in Oct is outrageously unpredictable (literally one year we found ourselves under a tornado warning mid party lol)

Prototype for my invites, only I plan on making the actual invite an aged scroll...this is just parchment I had on hand. Crates are constructed from foam board and the hand is made from cheese cloth, coat hangers and masking tape...measures 5.5x 10.5x4.25 these will only be for hand delivery we will likely just send out the scrolls to our remaining guests.

Cool mummy hand invite! and really nice construction and brush technique on the crate btw. Your invitees are going to love it and those that live away are going to be jealous! What do you use to assemble the foam pieces together (ie. type of adhesive etc)?
