Let's continue the 31 Days of Halloween party with an easy little project, shall we?
I have been researching projects for Halloween since New Year's. Literally. It is our favorite holiday and we tend to go overboard, so I like to look for inspiration early. I found this picture online:
Do you see the votive holders in the picture? Do you see the shape of them? So simple. They should be available everywhere, yes? No. They have votive holders of EVERY OTHER SHAPE IMAGINABLE. I found them online easily enough, but you have to buy them in lots of 72. Even I don't have need for 72 votive holders. On a trip to Goodwill, I found some small juice glasses... they worked in a pinch.
Grab your juice glasses (or the votive holders that you probably found all over the place), some black cardstock (with some textured design if you can find it!) and some little jewels from the craft store.
Once the glue is dry, take off the rubber bands and put some jewels on. I found large ones that made the first candle holder a breeze:
The next one was a bit more challenging, but since when has that ever stopped me? I lined the top and bottom of the glass the same way as the first, which went well:
This was an easy project and it looks great on the Halloween display! (You'll just have to wait a few more days to see the whole display!) If you want a different design, a ghost or a bat would be really cute, and probably easier than a spider. Happy haunting!
