Items needed to make Bloody Candles:
- White Candles
- Red Candles
- Candle Holders
- Matches or Lighter
Items needed to make Spooky Candles:
- Letters - wood, foam, felt, paper
- If you're using wood letters you'll need some jewelry making items to dangle the letters
- If you're using foam, felt, or paper then you'll need some glue
- For the witch, you'll need to print out a witch and glue it onto the candle
|Victorian Mourning Candles|
Items needed to make Victorian Mourning Candles:
- Glass Candle Holders
- Red Candle
- Black Lace
I think there is some black lace lying around my craft room - somewhere. If not, there is always dye! These are romantically eery. Not sure how those two words can actually go together but somehow it seems to work. Romantic + Eery = these Romantically Eery candles.
Items needed to make Spooktacular Candles:
- White Pillar Candles
- Black Candle
- Matches, Lighter
- Funfetti Bats
Can you see using these candles at your book club meeting? Oh, what fun!
|Pumpkin Spider Candles|
Items needed to make Pumpkin Spider Candles:
- Mini Pumpkins
- Black Pipecleaners
- Knife and Spoon
- Candle or Tealight
If the pumpkins are kept natural, a small tea light would be cute so that the wax doesn't ruin the pumpkins. Another cute way to use these pumpkin/spider candles would be with the flame-less candles so they would be safe to use around children.
|Ghost Candle Shades|
Items needed to make Ghost Candle Shades:
- Glass Lamp or Light Shades
- Mod Podge Glue
- Sponge Paint Brush
- Black Paint or Black Vinyl
* As a precaution, I'd recommend using the flame-less candles with these since some of the decorations are on the inside.
Here's another project that specifically shows the use of flame-less candles.
Items needed to make Graveyard Candles:
- Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Tubes
- Masking Tape
- Glass Pebbles or Rocks that will fit inside the tube
- Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
- Black and White Craft Paint
- Paint Brush
- Flame-less Tealight Candles
I would be remiss in my duties if I didn't remind you to always burn your candles:
I know you know all that. Think of it as an extra check list.
- In a draft-free area
- Away from flammables
- With you in the room
- Away from children or animals
So, which candle are you going to make first? How do you decorate for Halloween?
