Glowing Glass Globe Ghost

It almost ended up in the trash at my friends garage sale.

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

I brought it 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. (affiliate link)

Then I lit the candle and turned out the light for some spooky fun.
