If you are new to Smeared and Smudged, this is a blog dedicated to unique and interesting ways to use rubber stamps. I love trying weird and fun things with all of my stamped art, and this month I am sharing 31 Days of Halloween and Day of The Dead Projects! You are very welcome to view previous posts to see all of my Halloween projects.
Since I've been focusing alot on Halloween, I decided I'd share a Day of the Dead project with all of you today. But you can always take this project and use it for Halloween, or any other day for that matter. It is a DIY Scentsy Warmer, and I've blinged it out in the Sugar Skull Collection from Bombshell Stamps.
The warmers are phenominal, and if you've never heard of them, they are a candle-less warmer that fills your home with fabulous scents. Scentsy offers tons of scents to choose from, and recently they rolled out these DIY warmers that you can decorate yourself. They also offer some rub-ons/decorations, which is great, but what fun is that if you have stamps! Here's what I did to mine:
You can see the little green scent bar melting in the top of my warmer. I forgot to mention before, the best thing about these warmers is although they get hot enough to melt the scent, they do not get hot enough to burn. I can pour the wax out on my arm and it won't hurt. So it's safe for kids, dogs, etc. since it uses a bulb instead of a candle.
I loved stamping on mine, and plan on offering these already decorated in the near future in my etsy shop. But, if you're like me and would enjoy stamping your own, you can order them from my sister Tori, who is my Scentsy consultant. She's an awesome person, and has been gracious enough to offer a special 10% discount to anyone who wants to order a DIY warmer today only. Visit her site to read about all the great Scentsy products, and then shoot her an email and mention Smeared and Smudged to get your discount. (Make sure you email or you won't be able to get the 10% off!)
This was one super fun project to work on, and I'll be using it every Halloween to decorate my home! I'll probably even make a few more with some traditional spooky stuff on them. So if you wanna let me know what you think about my warmer, leave me a comment. You'll also be entered into the huge Blog Candy drawing at the end of the month. For details on that, check out my sidebar. Happy stamping, and Happy Halloween!
