These vellum animals make adorable shades for battery-operated candles. Or, make a beast from opaque paper and dress up a jar of pencils or a simple vase.

To make one animal, cut a 4- by 8½-inch piece of vellum. Roll the strip into a cylinder, using tape to secure the overlapping edge. Cut out features -- ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and four legs -- from sturdy card stock. Add pupils and other tiny details with marker. Use tacky glue to attach the features to the vellum, making sure the four legs extend an equal distance from the bottom of the cylinder.
