Monster Mash Candle Project!

Hi Everyone!
I am so excited about the project I have for you today!! I was trying to figure out what kind of halloween decoration would look good on a shelf that was looking kind of bare. I started looking and saw this old candle holder with these red candles on it that I keep in another spot in my house. A lightbulb went off and I got to work!
Here is the candles before:
Here is the after picture!
For the mummy, I first put some googly eyes on a black sheet of paper and adhered it with tape to my candle. I then cut strips of white paper and inked them. They were just layered with tape however I thought it looked good. I cut the spider from my potpourri cartridg and the mummy was done.
For Frankenstein, I cut the green paper to fit, inked it and added the black hair (cut by hand). For the face, I cut to white circle at .75 and two black circles at .50. For the eyelids and nose, I cut two more circles in green at .75 and cut them in half. I used pop dots to rais them up off of the eye balls. The mouth and stitches were hand drawn with a black marker. Isn't he cute!?
For the pumpkin, everything is hand cut because I didn't want him to look perfect. I just cut the orange paper to fit the candle and inked it a little. I inked the eyes, nose and mouth and used the leaves I cut to make the hair.
I absolutely love how it turned out and it looks great on my shelf!! I post a lot of projects on my facebook site, Creatively Crafty! If you like my page, you will be able to see when I add a new blog post and I have occasional contests!!
Have a Spooktacular Day,
