Up-cycled Halloween Candles
Welcome back to the May Arts Blog! It’s time to help the kids plan their Halloween costumes and get the house ready for the little ghosts and goblins that come looking for candy.
While scouring the clearance aisles at my local hobby store, I found some plain jar candles for $1 each. A super find as candles can be really expensive. I also make a habit of saving any candle jars as they’re usually made of good quality glass that doesn’t break easily.
May Arts Ribbons can take those plain candles from clearance aisle to elegant Halloween decorations in no time.
Here’s your supply list:
- Plain jar candles
- Clean jar candle or other glass container
- May Arts Webbed Weave Ribbon (WQ-10)
- May Arts Metallic Velvet (377-38-10)
- May Arts 3/8” Solid Check (KB38)
- May Arts Satin Cutouts (Ghosts (EX01)/Bats (EX10)
- Strong double sided tape
- Glue dots
Just run a line of strong double sided tape vertically down one side of the candle jar. Wrap and press the May Arts Webbed Weave ribbon firmly onto the tape. Wrap check and metallic velvet ribbon around the jar and adhere with glue dots. Attach the ghosts and bats with glue dots.
