- Clear glass jar – empty and clean
- White woven bandage
- Googly eyes
- Black craft paper
- Battery Operated tea lights or battery operated candles
- Candle (only if no kids are involved or they will not be around the flames.). Open flames and kids do not work together. Battery operated candles are best with kids.
The jar should be made of clear glass, do not use plastic jars.
Hold the bandage bundle from its open end.
If the bandage is more than an inch along its width fold it to 1 inch width.
Take the glass jar and apply glue on it, from where you want to start wrapping the bandage.
Place the open end of the prepared bandage (from step 1) on the glued area; make sure that the bandage is glued nicely with the jar.
Start to wrap the bandage around the jar, making sure not to leave any gap between the wrap.
Apply glue on the jar after each wrap.
Cut off the bandage from the bundle and glue the open end to secure the wrapping.
Use craft glue to attach the googly eyes on the top part of the jar’s body.
Cut out an oval pattern from black colored craft paper and glue it below the eyes.
Allow the glue to dry.
Place a batter operated candle inside the jar, light it up and enjoy!
