Halloween is just about the only holiday that I can think of where you can prominently display blood and guts and everybody is cool with it. Perhaps there are holidays in other parts of the world where it’s cool but I’m not terribly worldly and I have no clue about them.
To be honest, I don’t like gory Halloween decor. But my nephews are getting older and they DO. It’s all zombies and flesh eating and tubes of fake blood. Gak!
And while I want to appease them in their seasonal bloodlust I also have boundaries. It can be bloody and creepy but not too bloody or creepy. I guess that is why I am really keen on these candles I rocked out over at She Knows.
They’re bloody but kind of cute at the same time. Maybe even a little pretty?! But they smell amazingly like berries! They get their blood and I get my smell goods! Get the simple tutorial to make your own. It’s really, really easy and you only need a handful of supplies you can pick up at a big box store for a few bucks!
