I have a quick little project for you today that involves lighting up your Halloween celebration. I have a couple more lighting ideas that I might try later but here is my offering for today.
These little votive cup covers were super simple to make and assemble. As has been my goal for several months, I bought nothing to do this project and I was very happy to use some vellum that had been in my stash for several years. I also had a bunch of votive cups squirreled away from a previous celebration, so with all my supplies in hand, the project was a cinch.
The very first thing I did was measure the circumference and height of my votive cups and then used my Gypsy to set the size and added the little ghost about a 1/2” apart. I did not weld the two images. The little ghostie came from Paper Doll Dress Up and was cut at 1 1/2”, but really you could cut it at any size that would fit on the paper you are wrapping the votive in. I added ribbon, double layered on the edges to give the wraps a finished look and glued the vellum to the back of the wraps so that the light would shine through. I purchased this colored vellum years ago when I was using vellum a lot in my scrapping. The purple and green colors turned out to be great for this project.
Once I’d completed the wraps, I slipped them over votive cups and added votive candles. I would not recommend using candles for a long time burn because of the paper. I used them for the photo because I didn’t have any tea lights or battery powered tea lights. I plan on using the battery powered ones for the ghastly dinner I am planning for the kids.
Tomorrow check in for another piece to our spooky table setting.
