DIY Skull Candle Holder

DIY Skull Candle Holder- easy and chic Halloween decor

DIY Skull Candle Holder

This DIY Candle Holder is equal parts creepy and chic. Plus, it’s so easy to make! Terracotta saucers (you know, those things that go under to plant pots to hold water) are repurposed into the base and candle holder. A finishing touch of spray paint gives the whole thing a cohesive look. I think this would look great spray painted metallic gold. Maybe next year!

Supplies
4 inch Plaster skulls- 2 (I bought mine from Michaels)
4 inch 2 Terracotta saucers
Liquid nails
Spray paint

A word about working with Liquid Nails- This stuff is awesome and it hold much better than Krazy Glue or a glue gun for heavier projects, but it has a long drying time. This DIY has to be done in stages to allow for each part to dry fully.

Turn the saucer over. Apply a fairly large blob of Liquid Nails to the bottom.

Place the first skull on top and wait overnight for it to dry.

 Place another fairly large blob of Liquid Nails on the top of the skull and wait about 90 minutes for it to get tacky. Then place the other skull on top. I put a stack of books on each side of the skulls to hold it in place while it dried overnight. This will prevent the top skull from sliding out of position while it dries.

Put another blob on Liquid Nails on top of the second skull. Wait for it to get tacky- about 90 minutes.

Place the other saucer- right side up- on top of the skull. Let dry.
