If you wander into any Habitat for Humanity ReStore, or really just about any thrift store, you’ll be sure to find a section of glass light covers. They come in different shapes- globe, teardrop, flower- and a few will be vintage-y enough to be cute, but most just look outdated. So, what can one POSSIBLY do with them?
Well, I picked up a few of them that were similarly shaped… almost bell-like…because they reminded me of a simple ghost costume, a la Charlie Brown.
All they needed was a basic face- two eyes and a mouth (or not, for the latter). So I picked up an inexpensive sheet of peel-and-stick craft felt in black.
As you can tell, I did this quickly… and free-handed. But my little ghosty fellas didn’t need to be perfectly symmetrical!
And while they look perfectly cute in a cluster on my cabinet…
I felt the need to give them a little more pizzazz. At first I thought of using an LED tea light, but decided that would cast a glow more golden than ghoul-den. But lo and behold, the local party store had white glow sticks!!
Check out the difference an eerie white/indigo light can make! Jon’s favorite was the mute ghost…what do you say, a new night light for my husband??
Until next time… Craft on!
