Halloween laminated battery candle covers #bostikbloggers

This month, the theme for the Bostik Bloggers craft box was Halloween, and having seen the lovely Halloween sequins that were included I decided to use them to make some covers for battery powered tea lights to create some spooky Halloween decorations.

You need:

A laminator and pouches (or clear sticky contact paper)
A5 foam sheets
Halloween themed sequins
Halloween themed ribbons
Glitter
Bostik Glu Dots
Stapler and tape

Bostik Halloween craft materials


Instructions:

Use the laminator to make a sheet of spooky Halloween plastic for the lantern window. Spread the sequins and glitter out inside the laminating pouch, not too close to the edges, and laminate. If you don't have a laminator you can use two pieces of clear contact paper to sandwich the sequins and glitter together, but it won't be as stiff as laminated plastic so you may need to make the window on your tube smaller.

Laminating sequins and glitter

Use a craft knife to cut a large window in the foam sheet, then cut a piece of the laminated plastic to size to cover the window. Secure it in place with some Bostik Glu Dots at regular intervals around the frame.

Bostik Glu Dots for crafting

Bend the foam sheet around to make a cylinder. Secure it at the top, bottom and middle using a stapler.

Decorate the candle cover with some Halloween themed ribbons, and if you like some more sequins, once again sticking them in place with some Glu Dots to hold them firmly.

Then place a battery powered candle inside and enjoy!

Please note that these candle covers are intended for use with battery powered candles only, do not use with a real flame.

The box of craft materials was provided to me free of charge by Bostik as part of the Tots100/Bostik Craft Bloggers Club.
