Glittered Skull Candelabra

Embellish a creepy skull candleholder with glitter for a bone-chilling Halloween look.


Add Glittered Snakes for a complete tableau.



  1. Step 1

    Paint skulls as desired, applying two coats of each color to cover skulls completely. (On "The Martha Stewart Show," Martha uses Martha Stewart Crafts paint in Beetle Black with a gloss finish, Arrowhead with a satin finish, and Mother of Pearl with a pearl finish painted over a coat of Wet Cement in a satin finish.) Begin with your lightest color first and work toward your darkest.

  2. Step 2

    With a second brush, apply glue liberally to desired skulls and glitter with desired color. Martha uses Martha Stewart Crafts glitter in Sterling.

  3. Step 3

    Let paint and glue dry completely and finish by inserting candles into candelabra.
