Spooky Luminaries light up the night!


Hello friends! Today I am excited to share a holiday project with you!


Want2Scrap™ has wonderful laser cuts, so very intricate, and I snapped up these three a little while back in the hopes of making some fun new Halloween decor. From left to right:
I also had two glade candles in the perfect shade of orange to use for this project.


I started by separating the witch laser cut from the white cardstock moon.


Add adhesive to the backside of the laser cut. I chose a repositionable one in case I needed to move things around and also because any excess would be easy to rub off of the glass once the laser cut was applied to the candle holder.


I was careful to get all of the tiny details coated in adhesive.


In this case I trimmed the overhanging part of the laser cut and repositioned it according to the size of the candle holder.


Perfect fit!


She's spooky huh? I love the great orange glow of the candle behind the black laser cut. Now, I would be remiss if I didn't lend a bit of caution...the laser cuts are paper so be sure and practice safe candle burning habits. For a similar effect use a glass container and a battery operated mini light if you plan to leave this luminary unattended.


OoooooooOOOooooooh! I think I feel the first crisp breezes of Autumn.
I hope your Halloween is spooktacular!
