Halloween Candles {Crafty October}

Today I’ve been decorating pillar candles with Halloween stickers to make some simple, yet very effective decorations for the home…

I love the way that they turned out and they are so much more effective than I thought they would be! All you need to make your own decorated candles for Halloween (or lets face it, any time of year) are some pillar candles of varying heights; luckily Wilko sold a pack of 5 candles for such an occasion, and some stickers. The ones I bought (from Hobbycraft) were silhouette style, with clear borders which really helped to make them really look like part of the candle.

Now, for the hard part: unwrap the candles from their packaging, and do the same with the stickers…and stick away onto your candles!  That’s all you have to do :D

I used a mixture of spiders, webs, skeletons and skulls, and the stickers I had really lent themselves well to the different sizes of my candles.
