Reader Inspired

I thought I would do this Halloween Link Party feature a little differently and share a few links that inspired me to try them for myself!

Muse Lodge shared this awesome bloody window:



I had to try it on our storm door:





Sourkraut Krafts shared these creepy custom candles:



I wanted to use battery operated tea lights plus I was out of tissue paper so I ended up printing my images on regular paper, wrapping them around glass votive holders, and taping the ends of the paper together in the back.



Mod Vintage Life made these cute ghosts under glass.



Mine doesn't look nearly as good but it's still pretty cute:



Cheapskate 4 Life shared these adorable mummy candy holders:



I made one by wrapping cheesecloth around a dollar tree candle holder and securing in the back with a straight pin. Then I just tucked wiggle eyes under the cheese cloth:



This also inspired me to wrap cheesecloth around glass votive holders:


Feel free to grab a button from my sidebar if your project was featured!

The mummy holders look awesome, I love the way you made them!! :) I was going to try that bloody door thing but I haven't yet. Maybe it will be my weekend project, it looks great! Did you use more than one sheet of wax paper or was yours wide enough?
