Halloween Party 101. Well not really but let me just tell you I have a thing for crows. I remember when I used to freak out by the thought of a black crow. Now, I smile really big and give them names. I think many people associate a black crow with death and bad luck but shoots, I will go with the positive aspects of them. Here are a few incase you are “dying” to know!
- Life magic; mystery of creation
- Destiny, personal transformation, alchemy
- Higher perspective
- Being fearless, audacious
We all cool now? Remember these book/magazine holders I made? Well today I will show you how to spruce up those lovely white pillar candles that you get from Walgreens for 3 bucks. You know which ones I am talking about right?
The religious ones. But I get the plain white ones. I will gladly assume they are blank so I can create my own spiritual fairy on it and pray to “whoever”. Today we are praying to the black crows, and not the band. Even thought I rocked out to them 10 years ago. I wonder if the “Black Crows” (the band) is throwing a Halloween party.
Don’t get me wrong. I love glue. BUT I love adhesive jewels any day. Granted they will not be as durable without glue but for projects like this they rock my world. I got this sheet from Michaels and they were one whole dollar.
Step ONE: Apply the sticky jewels to the outside of your candle. BAM NO GLUE!
Step TWO: Cut a piece of silk ribbon. Look, if you are a die hard fan of ribbon then you know this is the LAND ROVER of silk land. Well, at least I think so. This stuff is 30 something a roll but let me tell you it’s worth it! It’s as soft as a…..bunny’s tail.
Step THREE: Tie three pieces of ribbon around your pillar candle (above the jewels).
Step FOUR: Admire these unique stickers from jolee’s boutique. Are you familiar with this line? I know I am and you will love them too!
Step FIVE: Grab your favorite sticker and place it directly on top of the ribbon. VOILA YO.
Super easy and quite elegant if you ask me. Now elegant in my world is 30 dollar ribbon so to each his own! Don’t forget to check out how you can still win a nice little gift card to Michaels HERE.
