Cut off the handle side of the plastic jug, including the pouring hole. Make this opening big enough so that the plastic jug can fit on your head. Cut off the handle carefully and use it to make a plastic jug handle eye mask.
The uncut side of the plastic jug will sit in front of your face and the bottom of the plastic jug will rest on top of your head. Use a marker to put dots on the outside of the plastic jug where your eyes are. Cut out the eye holes.
Use masking tape to cover the cut edges of the plastic jug. If you prefer, you could use sand paper to smooth down the edges instead.
Poke two holes near the opening you cut, directly across from each other. Cut two pieces of yarn about 24-inches long. Tie one end of each piece of yarn into a hole. You can use the yarn to help hold the mask in place.
Use permanent markers and/or paint to design your mask. You can also use a variety of craft supplies to embellish. use feathers, craft foam, pom-poms, chenille stems, glitter, beads, or anything else to add details to your mask.
