Cute idea!! You could also cut the facial features out of black vinyl and then be able to remove them and use the light globe for another craft after halloween.

I would highly recommend to use a $1 solar light from the Dollar Store. Some kid is bound to grab the globe, and start a big howl, if the globe is heated by a candle.


If you can't afford a solar light, glue sugar cube size rocks at the bottom of the globe to ensure plenty of air flow to cool the globe.

If you use a solar light, you can use wax paper instead of a glass globe.
