Halloween Craft Repurpose Upcycle Restyle Candles Black at LilacsNDreams!
Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams where I like to share vintage collectibles, repurposed treasures, a little upcycling and restyling, and of course some DIY handmade craft projects too.
Next weekend is Halloween already! Last weekend of the month, holiday season change, and more. Where did that time go, right? Things have been so gloomy this year of 2020 that I look forward to the upcoming seasons for some change, and the feel of the holiday spirits.
There are many crafts, and creations during this time. There are so many creative people sharing what they are doing so that others can try some of the same things. But, each piece is always unique because they are made with different hands that put their own special touch to things.
Candles are always great for many occasions, holidays, different seasons, and just because. They add a nice touch to many homes, and their decor. Below you will see pictures for the popular pool noodle candles that are being made. I had fun with these, and it was a learning experience for the next time too. I had 2 different sized noodles that I cut different sized candles with. Once I did that I next made sure I got holes made in the tops of them. A place that the tea light candle would set into. Then I spent time painting each piece black. Once that was all dried I then added a colored glittered glue that I had for these. I added the glue twice in the same places trying to get that melted wax look. It didn’t completely give me the look I was wanting. I might have needed a thicker, or better glue. Also, using a glue gun might have been a little bit better too.
So, I got that much done that I could then add my black tea light candles along with some little Halloween decorating. I used a bigger skull, smaller skulls, couple of bats, I found a single black rose to add in along with some white spider webbing too. I set this all into a simple distressed white tray with rope handles. Now, if I would have used a pizza pan painted black you might have seen things a little more clearly too.
This was fun, I enjoyed doing this, and would do it again! In fact, I’m already looking for a few more noodles, the colors I can find, and etc. I’m ready to make some candles for fall and Thanksgiving, and getting ready for Christmas too. It’s been a while, but I purchased a single candle from the store the other day. Wow! I didn’t realize how much those were costing now. So, doing what I’m doing making these is more cost efficient, I end up with a bundle, colors and sizes I want, how they’re decorated, and etc.
Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams today!Hope I gave you some ideas for yourself with crafting, or maybe if you find a crafter who can offer their services to you for this too. Take care, and be safe out there everyone! Till the next time, Toodles . . . . . .
