Spooky and Glitzy Candles

Enhance your Halloween with fun — and spooky — candles and jars.

Glitzy Candles

Materials and Tools:

pillar or taper candles
Candle DecoPaint (by Marvy Uchida)
ultra-fine glitter
manila folder

Steps:

  1. Use the Candle DecoPaint to add Halloween-themed drawings to the pillar candles. Crazy stripes also look spooky.
  2. While the candle DecoPaint is still wet, sprinkle ultra-fine glitter over areas that you wish to highlight.
  3. Work over a manila folder so that you can easily funnel any stray glitter back into its canister.

Allow the candle to dry for 24 hours.

Spooky Candles

Materials and Tools:

(3) tall glass enclosed candles
4" wooden letters, spelling "E-E-K" or "B-O-O"
craft paint
paintbrushes
Perfect Pearls embellishing pigment kit (by Ranger Ink)
spray bottle filled with water
8-mm jump rings
E6000 glue
chain
needle-nosed jewelry pliers

Steps:

  1. Paint the wooden letters with craft paint and allow them to dry. An eerie mix of green and black paint or a ghostly white works well.
  2. Rub the pad of Pearlizing Perfect medium on each letter.
  3. Use a paintbrush to dust the patina powders included in the kit on each letter. Spray with water from the spray bottle to set the pigments, and allow them to dry.
  4. Use E6000 glue to attach an 8-mm jump ring to the back of each letter in the center and at the top. Position the jump ring so that approximately half of the ring is exposed at the top of the letter.

    Note: Allow the glue to dry for at least 8 hours.

  5. Wrap chain around the lip of the candle glass. Link the chain together to form a loop of chain around the top of the candle with a tail of chain.
  6. Use the needle-nosed pliers to attach another jump ring to the jump rings on the letters. Attach this second jump ring to the chain.
