Decorating a Candle for Halloween

Hi, one of my loves is decorating Candles so couldn't resist creating this for Halloween as one of my DT pieces for Happy Daze.


Used Scroll Work Stamps Monique and Bats.  Tissue Paper, Multi Matte Medium, a Martha Stewart Lace Punch, Memory Box Die Cuts and the rest from stash.  The base decoration just slides off as we don't want it to catch fire do we.............


This is one of my favourite months to create for so you will be seeing a few more Halloween bits and pieces from me.

Looking forward to seeing your creations over at Happy Daze.   Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for dropping by.  Take care, Annette xx

craftimamma said...

Blimey, I knew I was behind with my favourite blogs but not this far!!!! I blame it on Facebook because I see things on there and leave a little comment and then forget to come and look at the full blog post.

Glad I'm catching up today though because I'm loving all the posts I've missed here Netty. The candles are fabulous and I love that witch. Would you believe I've never decorated a candle which is a bit daft as I have several in my craftroom waiting for some TLC.

Hugs
