Fake Dripping candles

When I saw this on Dave Lowe Designs , I just wanted to try and make some for myself.  They are so cool and add an extra flair to my Halloween decor.

All you need is a toilet paper roll, a glue gun, a mini tea light (electric), and cream paint.

It was actually a fun project to do.  Just messy!  Rip the top off your toilet paper roll to your desired height.  Then take your glue gun and drip TONS of glue all over until you get the desired affect.  Then when it has all cooled paint the whole thing cream.  Once done stuff the center with toilet paper and the rest the light just hidden inside your "candle".  Then your done!

It looks so cool.  My photos hardly do them justice!

This is a cool idea. I once bought up a ton of glue sticks when a store was going out of business so I'm really ready to try this one. Thanks for the great idea.

MJ said...

So cool! Just wondering if the flame cannot touch the toilet roll at all? Am always worried...

Annie Rose said...

Just to clarify :) I used an electric tea candle which has a small on/off switch on the bottom. It also generated very little heat.

Christianne @ Little Page Turners said...

Such a great idea! I think they turned out fabulous. They'd be such a great addition to any Halloween table.
