Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" -- actually red candle wax. Plain white tapers transformed into creepy candles are a scary Good Thing.
Tools and Materials
Creepy Candles How-To
Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.
