To start this project I removed the beads and cups from the candelabra.

Supplies I will be using:

  • 1 DIY candelabra
  • 4 Dollar Tree LED emergency candles
  • 1 set of Dollar Tree toy Halloween stakes
  • hot glue
  • black spray paint
  • 1 white candle

Next, I removed the emergency candles from the package. Hot gluing them to each end of the arms of the candelabra.

Spray painting two coats of black paint to the candelabra.

I took a wax candle and dripped wax around the outer part of the emergency candles to make them look like waxed candles.

To give my candelabra a touch of spookiness, I took the two stakes and cut the bats off.

Adding the bats to each sides of the candelabra’s top with hot glue.

Using the chains from the rest of the stakes, I cut them in half and glued them to the bottom of each arm of the candelabra.

Add the candles on and there it is….my spooky candelabra!!
