Glowing Glass Globe Ghost Candle Topper

It almost ended up in the trash at my friends garage sale but I grabbed it because I saw the ghostly potential.

I grabbed this old, glass light globe, along with way too many other things.

I brought the recycled globe home and gave it a quick one coat of white paint.

I was thrilled to see it fit perfectly on top of a candle jar

I gave the globe a simple face in seconds using a Sharpie paint stick

If you had several glass globes you could make them with all different ghost faces! 

How about painting them orange and making a glowing jack-o-lantern face!
