I got to share this fun Halloween idea on Skip To My Lou this past weekend and wanted to make sure that all our readers got a peek at it too.

I’m getting so excited for fall.  One of the funnest holidays is Halloween don’t you think?!?  I’m not into all the creepy, scary, bloody things.  I like the fun cute things.  What better way to have fun with Halloween decor then making  Halloween character faces on votive candle holders?

I found a 6 pack of clear votive candle holders at Hobby Lobby and thought I could do something fun and festive with them.

I used DecoArt glass paint to just paint one layer over each of the glass votives.  I followed all the directions on the paint.


Once the paint was dry, I use the Deco Art 3D Opaque Glass Writers for the faces.  It was so fun to draw fun faces on these little guys!

Super easy and fun.

Once the paint is completely dry, drop your candles in and light them up for some Halloween fun!

Aren’t they cute?!


  1. How totally cute is that?! I feel so privileged to be in the BOMB with you all. (Associating with the big timers… NBD! ) 😉

  2. I love these! What a nice idea! These could even make cute little gifts to friends around halloween too. Very nice 🙂

  3. Yes! They are cute, and I prefer the cutesty halloween stuff to the creepy stuff, too!
