Today I’m sharing another one of my projects that was inspired by something I saw in a local gift store.
I’ve seen a couple versions of these lately, but here’s how I made mine.
~Clean and dry your glass shades. If you can’t find any at thrift stores or garage sales, you may be able to find some at Lowe’s or Home Depot.
~Using a foam brush, apply a layer of Modge Podge to the inside of the shade.
I used this “Glamour Dust” by DecorArt that I bought at an estate sale last year, but any fine glitter will do.
~I was lucky enough to have access to a Cricut, so I had my friend cut out oval shapes from black vinyl for the eyes and mouth. You could also do this freehand or paint on your face.
~Apply the vinyl decals to the outside of the glass shade to make the ghost’s eyes and mouth.
~Now it would be cute just like that, but of course I had to add a little bow with some colorful ribbon I already had. Just tie it right around the top of the shade.
~Set a votive candle or battery-operated votive under the shade and you’re done!
Such a fun centerpiece or Halloween accent for any spot in your home! I haven’t pulled out all my Halloween decorations yet, but when I do these will be so cute all together as an arrangement or used individually around the house.
Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing more versions of this type of project later this week.
