Spooky Candle Holder in an Hour!

Thrift stores have it all… if you are looking for something and it doesn’t have to be new, and you can take your time to find it… then for pennies on the dollar you can find treasures! One such treasure… a brass candle holder for three candles.

Now I wanted to make this candle holder for my Halloween party covered in spider webs, dripping blood and super creepy… I got started and realized it didn’t need to have an “over the top” covered in craziness… a simple design made it classy yet, when lit, it was an eerie sight… you judge.

Puts out good light, just warn guests to remember their surroundings and Hair and Costumes are flammable!

I started by painting the brass flat black, added with a glue gun small skeleton hands I found at the hobby and craft store, added a painted plastic skull to the top and finished with 3 (Halved) blood dripping candles.  The beads were an after thought and not permanent to the decoration but added for the color to tie in some other decorations.

A simple design and a fast build (less than 1 hour total) made for a nice addition to the decorations for the Halloween party.  I ended up finding the same candle holder a few months later, and will make a twin for the other side of my sliding glass window.
