|CREATE|halloween bleeding candles


No this isn't a post about a Two Ronnies sketch, but a little craft to make some bleeding candles for your Halloween display.  If you don't get that you are probably very young ;)


Just 2 supplies needed, candles and syrup based fake blood!  This is the kind of fake blood sold in most supermarkets or pound shops, do look out for the sugar/syrup one though.


Add a splodge of fake blood near the wick, then hold straight to allow it to drip down the length of the candle, I find that 3 drips per candle looks perfect.  If it doesn't look quite right, at this stage you should be able to wipe it off with an anti-bac kitchen wipe (not sure if anything else works, this is all I've tried!)  Leave overnight to dry.

Because this is just sugar syrup these candles are fine to light.  Once the blood is dry it's appearance will be like rubber and it shouldn't be sticky.

  3. Love it, getting into the Halloween mood already. We decorated the house yesterday, which was fun. No fake blood for us though, the girls would go crazy and before I know it my white walls would be pink!
