Frankeinstein Lantern and Matching Party Favors!!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great day. I have a Halloween project to share today. This is a Frankenstein table decorations or carry around lantern. I used a plastic mayo jar to create this lantern. A plastic jar will be safe for my daughter to carry around. This project was inspired from HERE.
Here is a close up of the face. Isn't this Frankenstein so cute?
I also made some matching Frankenstein pillow boxes to go with lantern. I used the Cricut Wedding Cartridge to cut out pillow boxes.

Here is the supplies I used to create the Frankeinstein lantern. Plastic empty mayo jar, mod podge, google eyes and black felt, green glitter activity paint and flexible gauze. Small piece of red felt and green small amount of 1/4 inch black ribbon not shown in photo for face embellishment.
I punched two hole with the crop a dile so I could add green wire for a carry handle. One hole each on opposite side of plastic jar.
Paint mod podge on jar with sponge brush. I painted small section as I wrapped gauze around.
Wrap flexible gauze around jar and some around the jar cap too. I purchased my gauze at the Dollar Tree store for 1.00.
Paint green glitter activity paint on gauze.
Embellish face with black, red, green felt, google eyes and black 1/4 inch ribbon. I hand cut out black hair, nose and red piece of mouth embellishment. Add a tealight inside and that it. Here is how it looks:)
