One of the best things about Halloween is the opportunity to do things that make people feel special. That is one reason why many people love to host spooky Halloween parties at their homes. For many of us, there is nothing quite like the chance to gather with friends and family around a table and create a scary centerpiece for the evening. It is also a chance to let others know just how much we care about them. So, when you are creating your Halloween party decorations, one of the easiest things you can use is a Halloween handmade candle. There are so many fun and creative ways to use candles this Halloween season, and here are just some of the many ways you can incorporate candles into your Halloween party theme.
For one thing, there are two kinds of candles you can use for your Halloween party decorations. First, there are traditional votives which are typically tall and glass with a hexagon or octagon shape at the top. The traditional candle votive is a classic party decoration that makes a great addition to many parties. You can purchase these at your local party store or you can try making your own.
However, if you want something different than the traditional votive candle you can also purchase candle holders made from soy, which is a natural product. If you look around at craft stores in your area, you will most likely find soy candle holders in the votory section. If you have a crafting spirit, you can even try making your own Halloween candle holder using glass beads. There are no tools necessary and it is really easy to make.
Another great idea for your Halloween party decorations is to use candles in the form of holders. Instead of buying or making your own, you can purchase candle holders that have soy wax in them. Candles will last longer if they are stored in a safe place, so by having an easily cleaned and maintained candle holder with soy wax, you will be providing your guests with a safe place to display their Halloween candles. Candles can be placed in the holder, along with your Halloween candles, in a ceramic bowl, glass jar, or any other container you want. Just remember to keep them well wrapped so the scent does not permeate the other containers.
When choosing Halloween candle holders make sure you choose ones that are sturdy. You should also consider how easy they are to clean. Some holders come equipped with a removable top to remove the wax and allow you to simply pour the soy wax and wick it into the candle. Other holders need to have a drip tray underneath them to keep the melted wax from dripping down and causing a mess. Make sure to get your candles cleaned and dried in between uses.
There is a large variety of homemade candle kits available on the market today. Kits contain everything you need to create several candles at a time. Candle kits are easy to use and include a variety of different waxes, colors, and scents for you to mix and match. The only thing left to do is find the scented candles that have the Halloween scent in them.
