Halloween Candles: the Right Lights for Creating a Creepy Atmosphere

It’s that fun time of year again — time to make some thrills for the “ghosts and goblins” to enjoy. If you’d like to use some “creepy candlelight” to spice up your home for Halloween festivities, try a few of these on for size. Some of these ideas are easily made at home, such as cutout designs of Jack O’Lanterns, witches, cats, spiders, and other creepy beasties that you can make from construction paper and attach to the outside of a glass candleholder. Some of them actually use pumpkins: look at the row of little ones containing vigil-light size candles, and the “pyramid” of carved pumpkin faces all of which have candles behind them. You’ll often find premade Halloween candles with special effects, such as the black candles dripping “blood”, or pumpkin-shaped wax candles of various sizes — and colors.

Premade “ghost” candles are always fun; as the candle burns, the ghost gets droopier and creepier! The cheerful black-cat face candle is a fun addition to a kids’ party whereas, for a more “adult” setting, spray-painted white pumpkins, hollowed out just enough to hold tall orange, black, or white tapers, are clever centerpieces indeed. Another fun variation on that same theme is to take tall, wide glasses or vases and fill part of the bottom with candy corn as a “base” to hold a fat candle. (Of course, you can even get candles that look just like candy corn themselves…just make sure to tell the guests not to eat them!) These ideas are only a starting point, so let your imagination soar — for Halloween, the spookier, the better.
