DIY Painted Halloween Candle Holders

DIY Painted Halloween Candle Holders

Like a lot of people I love decorating for holidays. Christmas is by far my favorite but a close second is decorating for the Halloween/Fall season. I love the colors, the pumpkins and gourds, and a little bit of a spooky accent.

Each year I like to add and adjust to my decorations, preferably with a little DIYing. This year I wanted to make something that was super affordable but also cute.

I went to my local Dollar Tree and picked up a three square glass candle holders and a pack of four small candles(that put me at only $4).

For paint I wanted to work with just a few colors. I already had an off white and a black paint so all I needed to purchase was the orange which I purchased at Michael’s Arts and Crafts(it was $1.49). I had small paint brush as well so I didn’t need to purchase paint brushes.

What You’ll Need:

-Off white, orange and black paint.
-Paint brushes
-Glass candle holder
-Candles

Before painting, I removed all stickers from the glass and washed and dried them throughly.

Speckled Halloween Candle Holder

I began by turning the candle holder upside-down to paint the bottom and the sides at the same time.

Pick one of the three colors and begin painting specks of paint around the entire holder. Continue with the other colors and let dry.

When it is completely dry fill in with more specks if desired for a fuller look of speckles.

Spider Web Candle Holder

This one is pretty simple but looks really cool. Using only the off white paint, paint a line from the top to bottom and off to the side like the letter “L” on the candle holder. Paint two lines off the corner of the “L”.

Begin painting small swoops between the straight lines to give make it look like a spider web.

Paint a black spider if desired.

Also, I painted a full spider web on the bottom by turning the votive upside-down and paint

Pumpkin Candle Holder

This one is fairly simple too. Using the orange, paint a different looking pumpkin(no two pumpkins are the same anyway). Using the off white, paint on a stem.

For a more textured look, wait until the paint is slightly dry and add more paint. This will cause a bit of a smudge look.
