Candle.jpg Candle.jpg View attachment 94656 I forgot where I saw this idea online. I tried it and it came out better than expected. Super easy and cheap too. Wrapping paper tube, paper towel tubes and TP tubes. Hot glue (I was amazed that I only used about 3 sticks, flat black spray paint (just the cheap crap) and 3/$1 battery op tea lights from Dollar Tree. Pretty cool and no fire danger.

They look great! Luv the cluster look.
Did you spray yellow paint in the areas where the flames would 'reflect'? That's genious!

I like them too but I think since the candle body is black I would have sprayed the plastic covers of the tea lights too.

I've used a glue gun for fake candle wax on a smaller candelabra I made. Looks almost exactly like real candle wax, and sort of drips like it too. Very easy to get the effect you're looking for.

I just stuffed them with crumpled up newspaper. They are all glued together, then to a silver platter (dollar Tree).

Those look great! I really like the height, looks very dramatic. I made a candle cluster a couple years back using PVC and that very same DT platter. I rolled up some cardboard and stuffed it into the PVC pipe to have something for the tea light to rest on.
