Prim and proper for the rest of the year Halloween can bring out a twisted side of us.
These Halloween candles are just as twisted and add an eerie macabre to your decorations.
Added to your dining room table or placed on a side table you will have people wondering what happened and how you achieved the look.
And how did you? Very easily.
Candle wax can become very pliable if heated slightly.
Line a cookie tray with aluminium foil and make a ball of foil that you will cover with another layer of foil.
Heat the oven up to 200 Fahrenheit.
Place the candle on the foil so it is raised and there is a space under neath it.
Let the candle heat up for about 4 minutes, depending on your oven it might take a shorter or longer time so keep an eye on it.
Remove the candle from the oven when you see that it has began to take on a curved shape.
If you leave the candle in for too long then it will begin to melt.
If the candle is not curved enough then carefully check that it is not too hot and very gently bend it to the shape that you want.
They can snap easily at this point so be careful. Place in the freezer until it is completely set and hardened.
I put mine in a candelabra. You have to be very careful that the candles are securely placed in your candle holder.
NEVER leave burning candles unattended.
These candles WILL DRIP onto your table as they are crooked. If you are going to light them then make sure that the surface that they are on is protected.
Even un-lite they have a great look to them.
As these candles were 4 for a dollar at the dollar store the whole project cost less than $2. and took less than half and hour to do.
A great fast project just in time for Halloween.
