Hello, eighteen25 readers! I’m Crystal from A Pumpkin & A Princess where I share recipes, crafts, and holiday ideas. I’m so happy to be back again this year. I look forward to Spooktacular September every year and I’m always amazed by all the creative ideas. Halloween happens to be my favorite holiday to decorate for! I like to find little ways to change things up, like covering flameless candles that I use around the house with Halloween fabric. This candle craft can be made with any Halloween fabric or lace and is easy to remove once the holiday has passed.
- Flameless candles
- Bat fabric
- Pins or hot glue
Step one: measure and cut your fabric to fit around the candle. I’m using flameless candles form Costco that have a realistic feel to them (they’re also vanilla scented). You could also use real candles that you don’t plan to light.
Step two: use small pins or hot glue to cover the fabric around the candle. The hot glue is easy to remove if you want to reuse your candles for another occasion. However since my candles have a realistic candle feel, meaning they have a waxy surface, it’s difficult for the hot glue to adhere to the candle. I ended up using small straight pins from my sewing stash to keep the fabric in place. At this point you can trim off any excess fabric around the candle.
Pretty simple, isn’t it? Decorating candles is one of my favorite ways to change this on my table décor or mantle throughout the seasons.
Here are a few more Halloween ideas I’ve shared on my site:
