This week's challenge at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog is to make/decorate a 3-D object--a candle! I decided to make my son's teacher a Halloween candle holder.
I got this candle holder and pumpkin pie scented votives at the dollar store and used "Ribbons and Rosettes" and "Doodle Charms" Cricut cartridges to decorated it! Then I used a Peachy Keen "Cornies" face and a sentiment from Pink by Designs' "Simply Everything" set.
I cut an extra oval and shadow for the spiders face and popped it up with a foam square, then inked the whole thing a little bit with a white chalk pad. Then I thought he should have a "cutesy" face because it's for a First Grade teacher. I used a little twine from We R Memory Keepers and some bling.
A close-up of the sentiment. I put it on a treat bag cut from "Doodle Charms." The little spider looks like he's holding it--ready to go trick-or-treating!
Here's the back. I wanted you to be able to see the borders that I used--the spider and web and the stars. Then I cut a few stars and stuck them on the candle holder with Glue Dots. And of course, more bling! A little more twine around the bottom, and it's finished! Ready to take to school soon!
