Candles create a welcoming and warming ambience and candlelight is mysterious, they are not your usual fairy lights. That’s why candles are so great for lighting a party like Halloween! But of course you will need some candle holders and candlesticks to put your candles there. These holders should help create an ambience and add more charm to the room.
Bottle candle holder
You can make some candle holders from bottles yourself, which is a cool and very easy craft even for a beginner. You can just paint them black and put in some bright candles, they will decorate the bottles with your wax. You can add glitter, metallic accents, or even paint sugar skulls right on the bottles to commemorate the Mexican Day of the Dead. There are tons of options to choose from, and anything you want can be done easily.
Skull and Skeleton Candlesticks
Skull and skeleton candle holders are timeless for Halloween decor: they never go out of style and go well with most Halloween party themes. It can be a skull with a candle inside, skeletal hands holding a candle, a stack of skulls, or just a jar with skeletons or skulls stenciled on it. The idea is entirely up to you and your style, and most of these candle holders are easy to make yourself.
Other candle holders
There are tons of other ideas to try, and the most popular right now are artificial human hands – they can be common or artisanal and include not only candles but also vases of flowers, greens, and twigs. Mason jars can be covered with skeletons, skulls, blackbirds, cobwebs, spiders, or simply black tipped for a chic and sophisticated feel. Candle holders can get a unique look by turning them into bird claws or even making blackbirds with candle holders.
