Skull Candlesticks

These skull candlesticks are quick, easy and they look cool too! And the best part, they are super affordable!

From the Dollar Tree we have glitter skulls $1 each and a 2 pack of battery powered tealight candles $1 for the pack. The wooden candlesticks are from a thrift store and paid a whole 74 cents for the set!

Here's how we did it! First painted the wooden candlesticks black with paint we already had. When dry we hot glued the glitter skulls to the candlesticks. Trace the tealight on top of the skull and carefully use a box cutter blade to cut it out! Take out pieces of skull to make way for your tealight. If you make a couple of X cuts in the area you want to remove the pieces come out easier.


 How's that for some super cool skull candlesticks that only cost $3.74 for the set!? Pretty great I'll say! They look so neat in person. These are great for Halloween decor but would also be perfect for a pirate theme party.

Hi, I hope you don't mind me contacting you on your blog but I didn't know how else to. I follow you all the time and I love what you do and wanted to share with you something new...I'm Kim and I loved going over to Trendy Treehouse every Monday to link up. When they announced that they were going to only host it once a month I contacted them to see if I could host one as well. I now have the first week up over at my blog and I'd love for you to come over and link up with me and share the blog hop! http://themisplacedmidwesterner.blogspot.com/2010/10/money-mondays-week-1.html

Thanks for your comments everyone!

@ Cameron- For sure you can't beat thrift stores and glue guns! And the dollar stores aren't to bad sometimes either!

@ Michelle - sometimes you have to go quite often to find the "good stuff".

I LOVE this idea...too bad our Dollar Store is already out of skeletons. I knew I should have snagged some of these when I saw them! Great job!

Very thrifty fun Halloween idea. Looks great with the glittery skull. That was a steal for the candle sticks. Great job on fixing them up.
