What you’ll need:
Spray adhesive such as Elmer’s which I bought at Michael’s
Cylinder, clear glass containers
Dollar Store cellophane trick-or-treat goodie bags
This is another quick and easy ‘time filler’ craft. We actually busted this one out while waiting for a video to load on-line. First, make sure your containers are suitable for candles. Make sure they can handle the heat. Next, spread some newspaper down in your craft area. Adhesive will mark up tabletops. Then, cut the cellophane bags along their seam. Our bags had cats & spider webs on them. Cellophane bags are best because you’re assured that the light from the candle will shine through. Create strips of bags by cutting them evenly along the design. If your scissors won't cut adequately, stick to strips. Actually, they’re easier all around.
Spread the strip out on the newspaper. Spray one very even coating of adhesive along the strip. Quickly, take the container & roll it, beginning at one end of the strip. Keep rolling until it is secured to the container. Push out any bubbles or unevenness along the strip. You have a very short window of opportunity to fix boo-boos with the adhesive. Tackiness sets in within 15 seconds.
Repeat as you wish. You could go with an allover spider web design or piece together your own design from pieces of the bags. My bags came in a 50 pack for a dollar. The most expensive item was the adhesive at around $7 from Michael’s. Elmer’s is the best that I’ve used in crafting.
Let stand one hour to dry the adhesive. Wash little hands as soon as possible to get the glue off. We didn’t have any issue with glued hands. Being a spray, it is less likely to create that kind of issue.
The results are cute & quick. They will see their workmanship right away & can put them anywhere. LED candles would be best in a home with little ones or pets. Better safe than sorry. These could even be put into some sort of spooky display for trick or treaters.
