Halloween Candle Holders Country Sampler Knockoff


Halloween Candle Holders
Country Sampler Knock Off

I'm no painter, by any means of the word.
But when I saw these candle holders in the latest issue of Country Sampler I knew I had to TRY to make them.

Aren't the ones in the magazine just the cutest?  No way could I paint the scroll-y spider webbing, so I just stuck to doing dots. Dots I can do.
{Do I sound like Dr. Seuss?}


And, it just so happened that I had a set of nearly matching candle holders, 
BEGGING to be painted.


I wish I had that super cute spider in their picture, but I'm just working with what I have on hand.


Not sure if I'll let them say in my kitchen,
I tend to move things around til I find the right fit... and then it's time to take them down again. But at least these little guys will brighten this gloomy rainy day today anyway ;-)

Happy Thursday, Y'all!
