Supplied I’m a jar hoarder, so I had a TON of on hand. This would work with glasses of any size. Remove all of the adhesive or the sticker, and time to crafting! step 1 – Wrap gauze Around Jar and Mod-hodgepodgeI Started cutting my gauze cut into strips. Then I still have a small Mod collection, to the glass and began to wrap the gauze around the glass. I tried to keep myself to go for a layered effect. You definitely want to have several layers, your glasses look like mummies!next, I Mod smorgasbord along the inner side of the glass and folded the gauze lightly on the lips. Let it dry, and then fold the gauze down on the floor and Mod-smorgasbord in the place. Let dry.Finish by going around the outside of the jar-file and add more Mod-smorgasbord in the points (keep it nice and stiff). step 2 – Add your eyesNow, I cut some eyes out with my circle cutter, made of black cardboard. I think those eyes look pretty similar to Pottery Barn.Two ways, if you don’t cardstock on hand: 1) use Googly eyes or 2) draw the eyes with a Sharpie. I have a hodgepodge of my eyes with more Mod and let them all dry for about 2 hours. step 3 – Final cutFinally, ready to pick up some flameless candles or tea lights, and you’re to your Halloween luminaries!
