October 30th - Day 30 of 31DOH

Well... it's DAY 30 of Smeared Ink's 31 Days of Halloween...a huge blog hop for you to enjoy every day

Woohoo...the penultimate day!!

For more details hop over to Terra's Blog...there are great prizes to be won!!
 Find out about the Scavenger Hunt! 

Hope you are enjoying the hop - there are some amazing creations to see!
I am gaining so much inspiration from all these varied projects!!
And I really do appreciate the comments you leave!
The blog roll is on my side bar.
 If you are hopping in order your next stop is Creepy Glowbugg!

First I want to show you a very quick way of decorating a candle...
this was for a previous Halloween...

Take a bought paper serviette and separate the layers -
 you only need the top coloured one (discard the other two).
Trim to size to wrap around the candle and wrap again with waxed paper.
Use your heat gun to melt the tissue into the candle then remove the waxed paper.

This is today's pair of candles:

These were serviettes decorated with skulls - from Tesco's.
I added some witches stamped with Versafine and a SU stamp.
(When I was stamping on the muslin ealier in the hop I just used Versafine...)

My other make is a very quick tag card...

The tag uses a scrap of DP to mat the Dilly Beans image, coloured with Promarkers.

I added the Halloween sentiment and a couple of felt embellishments!!

Happy Crafting!! 


  1. FAbulous candles and your little tag is adorable. Love all the smiling faces. xxD

  2. Love the poem and he is soooo like the Chesire cat to me! With that sneaky grin goes great with the poem and love his colors!!

  3. Oh that smirking cat grin! Goes perfectly with the sentiment.

    I am assuming you use the wax paper wax side toward the candle.
    How else would you be able to remove the paper.
    It sounds so simple.

  4. Fun candles and card. Love the Chesire Cat and his saying.

  5. Love the candles they are so awesome! The cat is wicked cool, love him! What a fun image to color! Awesome card!
