rectangle). Now, open the felt. Using the center line from the fold, draw 2
eye openings equally spaced from the line.
Do this in chalk.
8: Next, draw a bigger almond shape around each eye
opening. You will want the width of this
to be about 1/2" all the way around each hole.

Mask around the outside of your candle jar.
Your Mardi Gras Candle is now finished.
