Silhouette Candles

Decorate your walls with shadows cast by candles and paper cutouts. We’re using ours for a spooky Halloween glow, but the possibilities are endless with what you can create to fit your theme.

  • You’ll Need:
  • Heavyweight card stock
  • Scissors or utility knife
  • 18-gauge wire
  • Tape
  • Pliers
  • Candle
  • Glass holder
  • Lighter
  • Step 1

    Draw your design onto a piece of card stock freehand or print a template and trace it. Many pumpkin carving and Halloween sites have free templates to utilize.

  • Step 2

    Cut out your design, using smaller scissors or a craft knife for finer details.

  • Step 3

    Straighten out a length of wire and tape the end to the back of your shape.

  • Step 4

    Using the pliers, bend the other end of your wire into a circle large enough to fit around the base of your candleholder. Slip the wire base around the candle holder and bend the wire at a right angle so your shape and extending wire are placed in line with the edge of the glass. Make sure your cutout is a safe distance from the candle wick.

  • Step 5

    Light the candle and let the haunting begin! Changing the distance between the candle, wall, and other light sources will give you various eerie effects.
