DIY Halloween Decoration Candles: (For Halloween Lovers) – A GeekyMcFangirl Tutorial


Hey everybody, it’s Amy from CraftyMcFangirl.com. Thanks so much for joining me
Today, we’re going to use recycled cardboard tubes to make some creepy candles for Halloween You can find links for all the materials you
will need for this project in the description below the video
both on YouTube and at CraftyMcFangirl.com You will need
empty toilet paper or paper towel tubes white acrylic paint a paint brush flameless battery powered tea lights scissors mod podge and a glue gun and several glue sticks The first step is to paint your cardboard
tubes white. You could also use tan or ivory paint. And I have also seen some creepy black candles
made using this method. Go with whatever color matches your décor. Once all of your tubes are painted and the
paint has dried completely, it’s time to add the tea light. Make sure that you have batteries in each
candle and that they light up. Heat up your clue gun for the next part. We are going to glue the candle inside the
cardboard roll. If your candle fits exactly, just glue it
in. If your candle is smaller than the tube you
will need to cut the tube open first. Glue the candle inside. And then glue down the seam. Once your candle is secure, it’s time to
add the dripping wax effect. Use your glue gun to create a series of glue
drips around the top of the candle. Allow the glue to dip on it’s own for the
most realistic look. Then let the glue cool and harden before continuing Once the glue has cooled and hardened, it’s
time to paint the wax drips to make them look like they are part of the candle. Also paint the top of the tea light to make
the entire thing the same color. Make sure NOT to paint the flame portion of
the tea light though. I made a total of five candles and cut them
to varying heights so they would look interesting in a cluster. Once the paint is dry on all of your candles,
the last step is to give each candle a coat of Mod Podge. This gives your candles a glossy waxy look. Once the Mod Podge is dry, your candles are
done. Ready to display for Halloween. Thanks for watching and have fun with this
candle project. If you enjoyed this video, consider subscribing. And I’ll see you next time.
