Skull Candlesticks

It seems that I am enamored of crafting with “skulls” this year for Halloween.  I showed you my front door wreath with skull and now I am posting this tutorial for making your own Halloween decoration skull candlesticks.

What would we crafters do without The Dollar Store?  It seems that you can find the very best craft items there and for $1 each.  I love it.

Anyway, I hope you try this tutorial and post pictures of your results so we can all enjoy them!


Skull Candlesticks


These skull candlesticks are quick, easy and they look cool too! And the best part, they are super affordable!

From the Dollar Tree we have glitter skulls $1 each and a 2 pack of battery powered tealight candles $1 for the pack. The wooden candlesticks are from a thrift store and paid a whole 74 cents for the set!

Here’s how we did it! First painted the wooden candlesticks black with paint we already had. When dry we hot glued the glitter skulls to the candlesticks. Trace the tealight on top of the skull and carefully use a box cutter blade to cut it out! Take out pieces of skull to make way for your tealight. If you make a couple of X cuts in the area you want to remove the pieces come out easier.  (Read the rest of this tutorial here.)
