Just a quick craft. I did a google search on this and didn't find much except where to buy these.
What could I have been looking for you ask?
Why bleeding candles of course. Haven't you been looking everywhere for how to make these?
Well, I came up with an idea - I probably saw this somewhere, but the recesses of my brain will not release that information - to use an old white candle of mine and a little red votive to make my bleeding candles.
Wanna' know how I did it? Ooooh! A tutorial! A bleeding candle tutorial!
Here's the supplies you need:
A white or black candle or really any color of your choosing (I used one I've already burned and I think that might be the best way to go
A red candle that has color all the way through
A plate, foil, wax paper, etc. to catch the drips
Light the red candle
Let it burn for a bit and then gently pour the wax off onto the candle.
Keep pouring red wax onto the candle until it is satisfactory to you
Sit back and enjoy the accolades for your really cool bleeding candles that you didn't pay $12 for. (Yes, that's really the lowest price I found for buying bleeding candles. My cost was $0 because I already had the white candles, the red candle and some matches.)
Baby Bee was very impressed with this. Just don't tell her how easy these were to make.
So what have you made for Halloween or fall this year? I still have to put my yard ghosts up this weekend. Oh! And you know the kitchen garden? It has turned into a very satisfactory little graveyard!
Thanks for buzzin' in!
Hope you can come by again to see the other spooky sights at Ghost Bee Cottage. (Uh oh - Worker Bee doesn't think we need to rename the cottage for Halloween. I disagree Worker Bee or should I say Jack-o'lantern Bee??? Cue the evil laughter.....)
Oh and by the way, is anybody else only able to load one picture at time? What's the deal? Anyone know or is it just me?
Just had to go join the party over at
