"Crafty" Candles

I love my Country Living Magazine.  While looking through, I found some beautifully painted/stamped candles.  I just had to have them.  I checked my stash and found that I didn't have to buy anything.  That is a great day isn't it?  When you don't have to run to the Dollar Store or Craft Store?  Anyway, this is how mine turned out.




This is the only paint needed.



Some lace.  I have a couple different types, but, this is the one that was easiest to work with.



The best way to do it, is, to paint the black paint on to the lace lightly.  Lay the ribbon flat on a piece of tin foil and roll the candle onto the lace.  I tried several ways.  Oh, the best part, is, if you don't like the way it turned out?  Just wash it off quickly and start over.



I just used all the white candles I got for my summer candle arrangements, so, I paid nothing in a additional supplies - YEAH...










What do you think?  I can hardly wait to get them scattered all over - ha ha.
I love Halloween Decorations!!!!!

Happy Haunting,
Rhonda

  9. They look like something somebody made a LONG time ago and left it for an unsuspecting visitor to the now haunted house of the creator to stumble upon. Sweet and creepy at the same time!
