Glow-in-the Dark Halloween Ghost Votives

Welcome Back to Wicked Wednesday!  
What do you get when you have one girl, three kinds of paint, and a votive candleholder?  A glow-in-the-dark ghost votive!  I can’t believe you guys didn’t get that!
Have you ever checked out the Krylon Website?  They have some really fun Halloween projects! Take a look at their gravestones and ornament display.  So Cute and Easy!

Here is our Version…

Here are a few tips if you decide to make your own…

  • We used a rounded glass votive holder from Wal-Mart, they were the cheapest there, by far.
  • Don’t cheap out on the spray paint!  It will look one thousand times better if you use the good stuff. I Promise!
  • Spray several light coats of the spray paint.  Your patience here will be worth it, so don’t cheat :)
  • When you spray the white on the bottom, make sure it goes all the way to where the frosted paint starts. 
  • We used a cotton swab and black acrylic paint to apply the faces.  The don’t have to be perfect!
  • Finally, add a battery operated votive or just switch off the lights, either way you are good to go with glowing ghosts!  
Have Fun and come back next week for another Wicked Wednesday!
