|My version of the mummy light|
There were a bunch of recycled jars still on my mantle that were JD's party centerpieces, so this project is extra green. I started by putting a candle in each with a little sand.
I found the colored eyes at Target, where I also picked up the streamers.
After I got both boys napping, I tore my desk apart looking for Mod Podge with no luck. So I made my own.

I covered a jar with the stuff.
Then I wrapped it with a single layer of streamer.
When that dried a bit, I used regular glue to put the eyes on.
Then I tore some streamers (to get nice, uneven edges) and added some texture around the "face".

|And this? Just me catching my kid not napping.|
|The whole gang.|
I can't wait to use them to decorate for O's party.
