Vinyl Skull Charger and Candle

I love the chargers Michaels always has this time of year and last week they were 2 for $3. They come in the coolest colors and even though I thought I was early, black was all gone. Oh well. They still had the metallic chocolate brown!
The Cricut cartridge Wall D├ęcor and More has a couple of great skull options. I used the plainer one since I knew I wanted to embellish it and cut it out using cream vinyl. Slapped that on the charger and then added a moustache from a package of moustache stickers I’d picked up for no particular reason.
Last week Michaels had all of their Recollections stickers and embellishments 50% off so I picked up a package of black swirly rhinestones. Two went on the skull’s head and two went on the rim of the charger. Easy peasy
I oopsed when I first cut the skull on my Expression and it wasn’t big enough. I didn’t want to throw away a perfectly good piece of vinyl but what to do?
 Why make a candle to go with my charger ‘course!
Mod Podged a black and white damask print scrapbook paper onto a glass candle, along with a taupe crackled scrap leftover from my altered bottles. Edged the top and bottom with K and Co self adhesive scrapbook stickers. Once the MP was dry, put the vinyl piece on and then added a rub on to the top. Kinda looks like a headband but it works. Embellished with some more rhinestone swirly thingies.
Finished off the top with a velvet ribbon scrap, twine, and a couple of stray beads.

Those turned out great! Sometimes an "oops" is a good thing.

I love the term "happy accident" instead of oops. They both look awesome!
