The last day of Halloween....

Well hello..

Now you may have noticed I have played along every day of the

Well this was for two reasons..

Firstly for fun - well I do Love love love Halloween
Secondly - as you had to participate in all 13 days to be considered for a part on there amazing DT!!

Now one of the challenges was all about lighting your project and I had a wonderful idea however due to holidays I didn't have the time to make it, so I made my candle...

I have waited everyday hoping I could use my idea... well today I can. 

Now day 13 is anything goes... but you have to show how you made your creation so I have a tutorial for you lol..

Now while shopping for Halloween goodies I saw a fab Candle holder and thought.... I could do that myself..

So off I went to get 4 picture frames

Then I printed off my 4 fave images on normal paper ( cheap as chips stuff - not thick). I had to make sure that each image would fit in the frame (15x10 cm)

Then I got my copics out and coloured them up - Carefully as it is cheap thin paper so bleeds A LOT!!!

Then I added them to the frames - leaving off the back

Then its time to put it all together lol...

You could probably do it with fancy hinges to make it look prettier, but I used VERY strong glue:

Then once it is all dry you can light it lol.. no not the box - a candle!!

For safety I had a votive candle

It is so cute (but almost impossible to photo well lol)

This cutie is from Jude and the Rockers halloween

This little dude is Franken - Scott

This witch is also from Jude and the rockers

And this fab skeleton is also from Jude n the rockers

I guess what I also like is that you can do them for any occasion or images!!

Well thanks for stopping by.. and wish me luck xx
