In this post, I’ll tell you how to make this tea light holder. It’s super easy to make, so it’s an ideal project for beginners.
I love “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. I watch it every year around Halloween and Christmas. I have figurines and a Monopoly that is based on the story. A few years ago, my husband got me four Jack Skellington mugs, each of them with a different facial expression.
I bought this glass two years ago if I remember well. I wanted to paint an eerie purple sky and witches on it, but I didn’t really have time for it. Last year, I pulled out the glass again, but I didn’t know what project I should use it for, so I put it back on the shelf. It had been happily camping there until a few days ago…
What I used:
- glass / tea light holder
- Jack Skellington stencil (I found a picture on Pinterest, this is what I drew on a small piece of paper in pencil)
- black acrylic paint
- small brush
- big brush
I placed the stencil in the glass and secured it with a piece of masking tape.
With a tiny brush – which was, in fact, a nail art brush -, I painted Jack, the mountain and the circular line behind them.
I painted the rest of the glass black with a bigger brush.
I waited until it was completely dry and put a LED tea light in the glass. I don’t think paint and open flame mix well, so I used an LED version just to be on the safe side.
