Day 10... Alter Candles

Hello Lovelies, Welcome back to the 31 Days of Halloween!!!  I am so happy that you joined us today!  I also hope you enjoy what I have to share with you today!  I love candles of all kinds.  I think candle light makes EVERYTHING look better!!!!!  So I always have them around.  Some of my fellow bloggers have already presented candles to you but I hope you don't mind one more.  I went a little different with mine.


I carved part of the candle out so that I could add this skeleton into it.  I took the wax that i carved out and put it in my melting pot so that I could reuse it.  Then placed the skeleton in the carved out space and attached him with the melted wax.  I added red and black stickles to the edge of the carved out space, then stamped the top roses with a stamp from the Man's Ruin set from Bombshell stamps.  I also added stickles to them.  Actually I just used part of a stamp for the roses as the skull part I didn't need for this project!  I then added glittery black and silver/pewter flowers around the bottom.  I hope you enjoy this project today and remember to visit each and everyone of the fellow 31 Days of Halloween bloggers listed on my sidebar!  Leave us all some love to be eligible for the prizes!!!! 
C-YA tomorrow!

I might just have to use this idea sometime - it's absolutely fantastic. Candles are one of my downfalls though I end up using them before doing anything with them.
Thankyou for sharing this
