DIY Halloween Creepy Candles

For first time readers here is the link to my how-to on making decorative spooky Halloween candle props. From beginner to more advanced these are perfect to add to your Halloween display and easy enough for the whole family to make. Made from a simple paper towel roll, hot glue and paint. Glitter, paint, or decorative paper the possibilities are endless it just takes a little imagination.

Stand alone or applied to something to make a creepy display.

Just have fun!

Here is a link to my more advanced candles Killer Candles!


  1. This is awesome! I so have to try this. I'm hosting a Halloween link party now through the end of November. Stop by anytime!

  2. How did you do the red candle drips?

    1. I used my hot glue gun and created the drips then painted the whole candle black. Then I painted only a few red with a small brush. Hope that is helpful!

    2. Thank you. I wanted to post a picture, but I don't see a way to attach. I followed your instructions, then also dripped melted red crayon down it

    3. Perfect! You can email me the pic and I can post it if you like, I would love to see.
