We recently created spooky, and adorable spider tealight candle holders. You may remember seeing mini pumpkins on our centerpiece social media post. Those are the very pumpkins were given new life and used to create our Halloween candle holders! The craft with quick, easy and yielded great results.
To begin this craft, you will need:
- Mini pumpkins
- Black pipe cleaners
- A drill and 1.5 -inch bit or a knife
- Pure beeswax tealights
- Begin cutting the stem off the mini pumpkins so that there is a flat surface to drill into. Next use your 1.5-inch bit to drill the hole where your Honey Candle will sit. Try to make the hole the same height as the candle so that the flame will sit above the pumpkin. If you do not have a drill you can carefully carve out a hole with a knife and spoon (a grapefruit spoon works best!).
- Next cut your black pipe cleaners in half; these will serve as the spider legs. Press four pipe cleaner halves into opposite sides of the pumpkin and bend them down at the top and into a right angle at the bottom to give them the creepy crawly look, as shown. If you have trouble getting the pipe cleaners into the pumpkin use a skewer or other sharp object to poke a hole that the pipe cleaner can slide into.
- There’s only one thing left to do after that! Place your beeswax tealight into your new spider holder, light, and enjoy! With a burn time of 4-5 hours your Honey Candles tealights are sure to burn from the first trick-or-treater, right to the last.
