This project grew out of a master plan to create a creepy Voodoo-inspired altar display for our yearly Halloween party. There are lots of these types of DIY candles all over the internet made from both t.p. rolls and PVC, but I wasn't finding exactly the look I was going for. Most importantly, the tops of the candles didn't look great, plus I wanted them to have a more aged look.
These candles require 2 layers of glue gun drips, a bit of easy clay sculpting for the tops and some spray painting finesse to create a "sooty", grimy bottom. Here is my take on creepy drip candle props for Halloween. Enjoy!
