Ghost Candles

Over 110 fabulous Halloween Ideas shared by bloggers. #halloweenideas #halloween

It’s Friday and day 5 of our Halloween Bash blog hop! Glad you could join us on this fabulous Friday for more Halloween ideas from me and my talented blogging friends!

Now that my saws and I are good buddies, I’m making tons of stuff out of wood.  First was the rustic pumpkins, then the play kitchen crates, then the rustic halloween signs.  Next up–these cute ghost candles!  Technically they are ghost candle holders but the candles are low so you see more of the ghost part.

I have all my fall decor out, but I haven’t broken out the official ‘halloween’ stuff out.  These ghosts will feel right at home in a week or two.

These are super easy even if you don’t have a saw.  Most home improvement stores will cut wood for you.  I bought a 2×2 (for only $2!) and cut them into three pieces of alternating lengths.  Then I drilled a wide hole about 1″ down into the top for the candle.  I would suggest a spade bit for this since my largest drill bit was still rather a tight fit for the candles, even after I shaved them down to fit in the hole.

After that, I just painted them white with Decoart white chalky finish paint, two coats.  Then I drew little ghost faces on with pencil and painted them in black.

I had some tapered candled which I cut down and shaved the ends so they would fit in the holes.  After they were lit, they looked so festive and ghostly and I love them!  If you are nervous about them tipping over, you can always screw a wider base on the bottom.  I actually cut some but opted not to use them since they seemed pretty steady as they were.

But the fun ideas don’t stop here!
