Project

Creepy Clip-Art Candle Containers

Introduction

Create little boxes of horrors to use as spine-tingling decorations. Place glass votive holders with tea lights inside the containers, or fill them with candy or other little gifts. 

Tools and Materials

Glass votive holders with tea lights

Glue stick, by Martha Stewart Crafts, from marthastewartcrafts.com

Colored construction paper, by Martha Stewart Crafts, from marthastewartcrafts.com

Bone folder, $5.99, by Martha Stewart Crafts, from marthastewartcrafts.com

How-To
Making the vessels is easy: Print copies of our template using a color printer. Use a glue stick to affix copy to a colored backing; construction paper works well. Cut along the perimeter; punch out centers of eyes to let light through.

To make box, fold down tabs, and fold each figure where it meets the center square, using a bone folder if desired. Use a glue stick or double-sided tape to adhere each tab to the back of the creature next to it; dry completely.
