Next, glue googly eyes to the front of one mason jar, and cut black card stock to be the jack-o-lantern's face and Frankenstein's eyebrows and mouth.  Glue the card stock pieces to the front of the mason jar, too.  Create adorable mason jar mummies candleholders for Halloween!

Allow the glue to dry.  Cut Rigid Wrap plaster cloth into small strips and set aside.  When ready, dip a strip into water and squeeze out the excess water.  Apply it to the mason jar and continue with additional Rigid Wrap strips until the mason jar is sufficiently wrapped in Rigid Wrap - creating a mummy look.
