  • Two-ply cheesecloth

  • Scissors

  • Mini black safety pins


  1. For a mummy-inspired napkin, tear squares from two-ply cheesecloth: Measure a 16-inch square on the material. To start the tears, snip the corners with scissors, then rip; fold in half twice, and put on plate.

  2. For shrouded candleholders, stretch a one-ply piece of cheesecloth around cylinder; secure with mini black safety pins, available at crafts stores.

  3. Finish with glasses of red wine and black-handled flatware crossed menacingly.
