Wanted to share this quickie candle project with you. I snagged these candles at the Dollar Tree - love the Dollar Tree!. They were . . . yes . . . a dollar a piece. They are like those tall, religious candles, only they're just 3 inches tall.
I printed out some scary, spooky words using my absolutely fave font for this time of year, "A Charming Font Expanded". Cut them to fit the height of the candle. Ran them through my Xyron, and slapped them on the candles.
Using this fun Martha Stewart "drippy" paper punch, I punched a line of drippiness out of black cardstock. Again, slapped that on the candle with glue. That's it! I plan to place these around all over the food table at our party Saturday night, and let each couple take one home at the end of the evening.
Oh, and I've totally ripped-off the framed 31 from Sarah, who ripped-it off from Chris. I printed out the 31 on some cute ghost paper using, again, my favorite font.
Funny . . . my husband saw it this morning and asked what the heck that meant. When I told him it was "you know . . . Halloween . . . it's on the 31st", he just rolled his eyes muttering something like "oh my gawd", and left for work! He doesn't exactly share my love of Halloween - not even a teeny tiny bit!
