Spooky Candlesticks

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend!  I whipped up these candlesticks last week and just put the finishing touches on them this morning.
I spray painted each one black to start.  I don't work with glitter a lot (mainly because I seem to get more on me than my actual project), but I wanted to make the smaller two stand out.  I covered them with Mod Podge and then just sprinkled orange glitter on.  I gave them a coat of clear spray paint hoping it would hold the glitter on better.  Nope.  Still shedding.
I added some of my French script candles to each stick.  For the smaller two, I printed out the boo letters from The Graphics Fairy onto label paper and simply stuck them on.  For the middle candle, I tied on a trick or treat tag (image also from The Graphics Fairy).
The finishing touches were the orange seam binding and black tulle ribbons.  Happily, I had everything I needed to make these.

Not sure if there are linky parties tomorrow because of Labor Day, but I am hoping to link up to The Graphics Fairy: Brag Monday and Between Naps on the Porch: Met Monday.

Very cute! Love the BOO. I used those a few years ago and just framed them in a small black tri-frame.

Those are adorable! I'm afraid I might have to be a copycat on these. I'll try to do something different, but my goodness! I hate to mess with perfection! Hope you don't mind my pinning it.
