BOO Craft

I have been painting and sanding the last few days, so I have nothing complete to share. 

So, I went into my archives and found this easy and fun Halloween craft that we loved making last year.  I thought I would share (again for the few that have been with me for a while).

This is by far one of the easiest projects I have done.  After I posted my lack luster Halloween decor, I thought I could bang out a quick craft that would add a little life to the entry way.


What you need:
  1. 3 candlestick holders (from Dollar Store) $3
  2. 3 candle/vase holders (any shape, from Dollar Store) $3
  3. Gorilla Glue
  4. Candy corn
  5. String/ribbon, whatever you have around
  6. Letters (mine are from scrapbooking, but you can make them and cut them out, use a punch, buy pre-made ones at any craft store)

First, I removed all the stickers from the glass pieces.  Then I placed glue around the top of the candlestick and plopped a jar on top, centered it and left it to dry.  If you have never used gorilla glue, DO NOT get it anywhere but on the glass!

After 10 minutes, I tied the ribbon, filled the jars and stuck the letters on.

Now I am feeling a bit better about Halloween. 

I will be back with some furniture finds tomorrow!

Have a great day!
