Jar Candle Ghosts

This was a very fun project to do...and it was quick...I had this wonderful smelling jar candle on my desk ( Honeydew Melon) and I thought if I altered it...not only would I have a nice smelling candle...it would also be something pretty to look at...I used a lot of scrap pieces from my scrap stash.



I measured and cut out my ghosts...four of them fit around this candle jar...you could use less for a smaller jar...or more for those jumbo candle jars...stamped my cat...and bats...used Going Grey to colour my ghosts...so the Whisper White paper wasn't so bright.



This is the recipe:


Stamp Sets: Whimsical Alphabets Upper and Lower Cases, Ghosts sentiment purchased at Michael's, and Bats from Hero Arts.




Card Stock: Only Orange, Whisper White, Basic Black, and Elegant Eggplant.




Chalks: assorted colours




Additional Accessories: Black /White, Orange/White gingham ribbons, Purple ribbon...Googly eyes all purchased at Michael's.





My jar candle is a 22 ounce jar and it used four ghosts...The pattern for the ghost came from the Paper Crafting Magazine...supplies from Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.


I Hope that everyone has as much fun with this project as I did...let me know what you did with your Jar Candle...thanks for stopping by.


Have a stampin' good day.



Hugs
