Skull Candle

Introduction: Skull Candle

About: I am a 15 year old boy that likes to make stuff and be creative. Check out my youtube channel!

Ever seen one of those skulls with a canle on top? Ever thought it was cool? I'll show you how to make one!

Step 1: Materials

This project doesnt require much materials, and they are pretty cheap

Things you need:
1. A skull of some sort (doesnt really matter what its made of, mine is of plastic :P)
2. A white candle
3. Matches/lighter
4. A knife or scissor
5. Patience

Step 2: Melting the Wax...

For this step you are going to need patience. Cut the candle in half with you knife/scissors. Light the upper part of the candle and start dripping the wax onto the top of the skull. Its as easy as that. I recomend to just make a single layer and let it set before applying another layer. This way the wax won't spill to the sides and it will take less time to make a "pile" on the top of the skull. After you have made a chuck of wax at the top, take the lower part of the candle and press it onto the wax while its still warm. Let it cool and there you have it! your very own skull candle!

    Well, thanks for a creative way to light up the candle. Maybe it should be candle on the top of the skull. :)

     I did this a while back with a bobcat skull a redneck friend of mine gave me.  Except that I used a black candle.  I've used it quite a bit and I'm on my 3rd or 4th candle now.  The black wax drippings down the side of the skull make for a very cool gothic effect.

    My wife hates it.  That's okay though.  It is just one more reason for her to want to stay out of my "cave."  ;-)
