Sparkle, Shimmer Shine on Halloween Night...A D.I.Y. BOO-tiful Glow!

Since it's getting closer to that hauntingly magical night called Halloween  I thought Id' dust off a post from 2010 and share a fun and easy project that was sparked by a trip to my neighborhood Dollar Tree!
A little glitter, a few bows and a whole lot of glow is the result of these BOO-tiful candles.

For each candle I used:
1 - Clear Glass Tall Glass Candle holder (removed the stickers)
1 - Tag-board tag
Any size will work. I used the larger size available from any office supply store and cut it down to the shape that I wanted. Since the candles are not scented in this type of candle holder I dipped the tags in scented wax and sprinkled them with glitter to add a scentsational touch...Sugar Cookie...soooo yummy...or a little glue & water mixture brushed on the tags with a sprinkle of glitter before dry and you could get the same look.
3 - 1" Round scrapbook stick on tags
Markers
1 yd. Halloween ribbon
Glue
Glitter - optional


Sparkle, Shimmer, Shine on a Halloween Night
These "Boo To You" Candles glow ever so bright!
Ribbons tied around them in fancy little bows
Scented little tags that tickle your nose!
Add a touch of glitter, a little not too much
A magical Halloween candle a  perfect finishing touch!
