Use electrical tape to gussy up plain candle sticks

Halloween CandlesOffbeat Homie Chrome Cat uploaded this pic of her awesome candle hack to our Flickr pool. She described it as “candlesticks + electrical tape = Halloween candle decor!” I think it’s awesome candle decor for anytime. It’s super Tim Burton-esque, isn’t it? Think of the cool color combos you could use to make rainbow candle sticks!

Of course, I also think it’s best to use this trick on candles only used for decorative purposes. Flames and electrical tape sounds like a nasty combination.

  1. Aww, cool! Totally forgot I uploaded that to the Flickr pool. I’m not much of a DIY’er, so the fact that these are super easy to make is a plus. I was going for a Beetlejuice sandworm look, so your Tim Burton-esque comment was right on the money, Megan!

  2. NB: You can buy sheet wax in lots of different colors. Cut it into strips and use it like the tape, and still have functional candles!
