HALLOWEEN GHOST CANDLES

Easy Halloween Ghost Candles 
Here's my little ghost candles.


 I bought a pack of 24 votive sized candles at the local Big Lots for around $6.00. And that's not really a high price for so many.

 But when I buy them to make and resale them at my booth, every penny counts.

I just used some black craft paint, painted on the faces.


 And then dipped them down into a white, melted candle.  The quick dip seals up the faces and protects them from scratches.

To let them dry, just sit them down on a sheet of wax paper.
And once they are dried, here is how I package them up.
I just put each one down into a little baggie of the appropriate size and staple a piece of brown paper on the top.
Then I add a price tag that I print out of those little sheets of return address labels.

Here's a pic with some pumpkin face ones too.

Sometimes I add a little tag that says Happy Halloween or so with a little piece of homespun fabric.
But I couldn't remember where I got those little tags, so I decided to leave them off the ones I was going to sell, and only use them on the ones I give away. Just in case they were copyrighted tags.


Great for your Halloween table displays!


(Note: these are not just painted on faces, they are set in wax)
