Bloody Candles

I've been given strict instructions by my youngest that I am not allowed to decorate for Halloween until October 1st...but I cheated.
I can't help it.
These candles are so easy to do!
Start with white taper candles...or any white candle for that matter. You can either hold them by the wick over a protected surface or melt some wax at the base and stick them to the protective surface...I did both.

Then, light a red candle and pour the red wax down the white candle so it looks like the white candle is 'bleeding'. It's a very creepy effect.

By the way, as I was doing this, my daughter said, "Is that making you happy?" Cheeky girl.
