DIY Scary Candles

There were so many amazing things in The Curious Creations of Christine McDonnell that I just wanted to rush off and do myself immediately. Most were way too complicated for me, but this project was just perfect.

Instead of making my candles from scratch, I took a couple of black and couple of orange candles. I mixed melted candle wax with some beeswax to get a really old look on the candles. Then I poured the melted wax over the candles until I got the thickness I wanted (made to the thickness of some candlesticks that I own). I cut out the scary face using a scalpell.

When the candle is lit, it is even more scary! The black or orange middle runs and puddles around the candle, making it look as if it’s bleeding!

    Ah, you actually made these! Fantastic! I loved this show, but was too intimidated to try anything out (though I really loved the spider cookies).

    So happy to see my creative friends pushing ahead!

      There were so many amazing things in that show! But not the easiest project – these candles were pretty easy though!
