Halloween Cameo Votive

I love cameos.  I picked up a skeleton cameo and had to make something for Halloween this year!


I really like the purple and black combination for Halloween - to me it makes it a little more classy!

What you will need:
Vase / Votive holder
Scrapbook paper
Skeleton Cameo - I bought mine off ebay
Ribbon / Trim
Hot Glue

First measure and cut the scrapbook paper to fit around the vase.  Leave enough for a slight overlap.  Then wrap the paper around the vase and glue the ends together, overlapping slightly.

Next, cut the ribbon to fit around the vase and glue it down.

Then add a second ribbon or trim if you like.

Lastly, add the skeleton cameo filigree.  ( I didn't get a picture of when I glued the skeleton cameo to the filigree.)

So simple & easy, but it's a great look - for a touch of Halloween!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
