Blood candle - DIY Halloween decoration 2022
Ahhh ... finally autumn is here and it's getting dark nice and early again, so you can snuggle up in the cozy candlelight from late afternoon.
Candles are the chandeliers of the little ghoul.
We'll show you how to turn ordinary candles into morbid bloody Halloween candles that Hellraiser would love.
Materials for Halloween blood candle
- Large candles white
- Candle red (the candle must really be made of red wax and not just coated with a red outer layer)
- as a variation: bone candle
- Nails in different sizes (Some big nails are important, but not too many. If you find the nails too bright and metallic shiny, you can spray them with matte black spray beforehand).
The crafting of the bloody bone candles
Simply press the nails into the wax with your hand (you feel a bit like Obelix pressing nails into a wall with his hand).
For the large nails, proceed slowly and carefully, otherwise the wax will splinter.
Be careful not to place the nails too evenly so that there is no visible pattern.
You get a spooky stylish addition and alternative when you use bone candles.
Now the red candle comes into play.
Light it and carefully let the wax drip onto the center of the large white candle. The red wax will now run down the side.
Repeat this process until the entire top of the candle is red.
Be sure to put something underneath you if you don't want wax to get on the work surface. Please observe all precautions that should be taken when working with open fires.
And ready is the Halloween blood candle in chic Voodoo Hellraiser style. Spreads a pleasant morbid glow in any home.
