Hello everyone! Halloween is just around the corner, and I’ve got the cutest DIY decor idea to share with you! You may have seen those $80 Pottery Barn ghost pillows & their dupes floating around. I’ve gave it a little turn and make it a fun Halloween ghost candleholder. Let me show you how I did it.
Purple Hues and Me and her adorable plastic cup vase, welcome! It’s time for our monthly Creative Craft Hop, hosted by Sara of Birdz of a Feather, so stick around after the post and I’ll send you to the next post on the hop.
Halloween Ghost Candleholder Supplies:
fuzzy microfiber cloths
Cut the Microfiber Cloths
Since you will want to make this ghost taller because it will be a Halloween candleholder and not a short pillow, the usual microfiber cloths from Dollar Tree won’t cover it completely. My husband had to pick up some cloths from Auto Zone since Dollar Tree was out, so I had one extra step, cutting off the gray seams. If you have to do the same, since most DT’s never have the cloths, you’ll need to cut the seams of that brand too.
Assemble the “Base” of the Ghost
First, remove the stem out of the styrofoam pumpkin.
Cover the Ghost with the Cloth
Finally, place the cloth over the top. I placed it so the seam I created would be toward the back of the skull at the top. The back of the cloth will be a little long; cut that off.
Create Ghost Eyes
To complete the ghost portion, draw an oval eye on black felt. If you can free cut it go ahead, I just wanted to make sure it was even. Fold the felt in half, then you can cut once to create two eyes for your ghost Halloween candleholder.
Attach the Candleholder to the Ghost
Turn the glass candleholder upside down and add Quick Grip to the center, then place it on top of the ghost.
That’s it! Your Halloween ghost candleholder is complete!
Isn’t this ghostie cute?!
