Spooky candle tutorial...

Here is a simple tutorial on how to make spooky candles...


so easy...


first you melt some wax, I use an old crock pot for all my candles.  Here I am using some parrafin wax, but you can even use another candle, and I added a black crayon for color...I like using the crockpot because you can just turn it on and walk away...


some candles, doesn't matter what color they are, just whatever you have...


hold the candle by the wick over the wax and using a laddle (a cheap one from the dollar store) start pouring wax over the candle, let dry and add more...


just keep adding wax until you like it, you can't go wrong...


I put mine on candle sticks with some spanish moss, but they look great in groupings on your mantle or anywhere...I have even added ribbon and baubles around them...


have fun!
