I know, I know- It’s August and I am posting Halloween, but If you’re a crafter you know every store is full of Halloween crafts and décor already. I have come across some things that I knew I could make cheaper and have found some things that are a great deal. SO I needed to share. I was at Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day admiring all their Halloween décor and came across these sugar skull candles. They were selling them for $6.99 Very cute, but I remember coming across these candles at Dollar Tree.
Well in the next aisle at Jo-Ann’s I found these Sugar skull embellishment’s.
For two they were $4.99 with 25% off, making it $3.75. I turned my craft into two projects. I came across these goodies as well and couldn’t believe the price. They were not on sale but even if they were 50% off the price is still crazy. I drink wine so I have wine bottles already able to use, but even if you don’t drink wine find a friend that does. You can also ask restaurants that serve wine if you can recycle their bottles for them. Buy a can of spray paint. I always buy mine at Wal-Mart for less than $4.00. I wanted to spray my bottle with a gloss black instead of chalkboard. The best tip for spray painting is to give yourself enough space to avoid paint runs.
Once dried I added one of my sugar skulls.
For my candle, all I did was add the other sticker.
I also found this pumpkin at Dollar tree that I spray painted.
I made myself a cute little arrangement for just a few dollars, with plenty of spray paint left for many more projects.
