STRAUB’S HALLOWEEN DECORATION IDEAS

Hosting a Halloween Party? Make sure it’s frightfully delightful with fun decorations like these.

Root Votive Candle Decorations

Fall Leaves

 3ee7f19d

Materials:

 

Fall leaves (preferably ones that are not totally dried out)

Votive Candles

Glass containers

Double stick tape

Clear poly-crylic

Paint brush

Scissors

 

Directions:

 

1) Collect your leaves and coat both sides of leaves with two coats of clear poly-crylic. This preserves the color and prevents them from drying out.

 

2) When they are dry you can trim them down to fit the size of your votives. Make sure the leaves stop about a half inch down from the top of the glass. You do not want the tips of the leaves going over or near the top of the glass, this will prevent them from catching on fire.

 

3) When you have them trimmed, add some double stick tape to the back of the leaves and place them onto the glass.

 

4) Light a candle and enjoy the colorful glow.

 

Spooky Candles

Materials:

 

Frosted Glass Finish

White Indoor/Outdoor Paint

Glow-in-the-Dark Paint

Black Craft Paint Pens

Round glass votives

 

Directions:

 

1) Begin spraying several light coats of Frosted Glass Finish on the lip of each votive. It is not necessary to saturate the lip as the idea is to create a “disappearing” gradation of white to add to the ghostly illusion. Let dry completely.

2) Spray several light coats of white paint on the bottoms of the votives until coverage is solid while concentrating on blending the white seamlessly with the frosted glass. Let dry completely.

3) Spray entire exterior of all the vases with Glow-in-the-Dark paint so that when your votives are not lit, they will still glow-in-the-dark, welcoming dusk. Let dry completely.

4) Finally, freehand facial features (eyes and mouths) with a Black Paint Pen to give each ghost a personality!

2) Trim the Pomps-Pomps so they will sit nicely in the pumpkin.
