And if you are local friends. This Saturday's workshop at my Studio, downtown Bakersfield, is making these spooky chic, candle sticks. Get your ticket HERE.
Copper is everywhere. And I love that it's really just an inexpensive material you can pick up at your local hardware store. I love these with sleek black taper candles for halloween, but for a lighter airier look, they also look great with white candles.
Ok, here's what you'll need.
- quick dry cement
- plastic container for mixing the cement in
- plastic spoons
- mini plastic jack o lanterns (I found these at the party store)
- 1" copper fitting (found in the plumbing section at the hardware store)
- x-acto or pocket knife
- needle nose pliers
Remove the handle from the plastic pumpkin and fill the pumpkins with cement by the spoonful.
When the pumpkin is full, tap it firmly to remove any air bubbles.
Allow the cement to set for at least 15-20 mins. Then using a knife or x-acto, cut a small slit in the top of the plastic pumpkin.
Then using the pliers, peel away the plastic from the cement.
Allow the cement to cure completely over night and then place pretty taper candles in each little pumpkin.
