Halloween Tealight

Good morning all.

I'm off down home today as I have a funeral to go to, I hope the weather behaves.

Some recycling to share today.
I started out with this:

Took out the middle and added a battery operated tealight...

and ended up with this!

Image is from PpinkyDollsArt and I've coloured with promarkers before die cutting with a Spellbinders oval and layering onto a fancy oval.

Fence die is from Magnolia, I used black card and then rubbed gold gilding wax over it. Mesh came from Crafty Ribbons and button from my stash.

Spider's web, spider and pumpkin dies are all from Spellbinders. I edged the lid with black ribbon and added the orange spotted ribbon over the top, both ribbons from Crafty Ribbons. The witches hat was made to fit the top of the lid, cord from Crafty Ribbons and stars from my stash.
