Fa-BOO-lous Halloween Guest Designer

Hello everyone!!! Today is a super fun day, I'm guest designing for Tamara over at Happy Life, Crafty Wife! Why you ask? Well this week she's hosting the Fa-BOO-Lous Halloween Inspiration Week!
Each day this week a different awesome brand will be featured, today is Trendy Twine's day! Are you ready for my project?!? Well here you go:
Isn't that cute? I had the urge to top the awesome Frankenstein candle I made last year (you can find it here).  I also knew I wanted to make something a little cuter. I just knew I wanted to use the Fright Night Friends stamps from My Thoughts Exactly too! I was snooping around on Pinterest and found a cute jar candle that had been wrapped in burlap and decorated with a rosette ..well I really liked the idea of burlap and thought hey I could stamp on it! Enter that awesome burlap covered in creepy cute eyes and BOOs :) I wrapped my burlap around an orange candle I had lying around and tied some pretty Halloween Trendy Twine around the top. I then used the matching SVGs to the Fright Night Friends stamps to create my spooky cute friends. My little ghost is on a homemade wobble so he has a little wiggle in him. The bats and the moon are just flying around on some twisted craft wire. So I would have inputted cute close ups of all the fun things on this candle but I got the brilliant idea to keep it on my craft table while I finished up some other projects (I took this picture last week when I finished it so I could get it to Tamara)...well I'm not sure about you but I must be a little spastic when I craft because two cards later and only one bat remains flying around the moon, Mr. Ghost is also no where to be found. I'm going to blame the dog... :) Note to self next time get all the pictures at once!
