After seeing the outrageous prices for halloween lamps and chandeliers I decided to make my own using pvc and the containers of butter. I think they came out decent enough..One has actual working lamp (using a nightlight bulb so I don't fry everything) in it and the other is just for show. A little bit of cobweb and some dollar tree spiders and they will be ready for my display.

Your Chandeliers look great!

I made this one several years ago out of foam skulls and bones. I had to run long wires down the length of the bones to make them strong enough to hold the shape I wanted. I then twisted the ends on the wires to form hooks and loops to connect the whole thing. The candles are just stuck into holes in the tops of the skulls. Last year my candles were a little smaller in diameter than the previous year so when they burnt all the way down, the butts of the candles would fall threw to the ground. Luckily it was on the drive way so there was no fire. Also, because of the angle of the candles, they drip. It makes a great effect on the skulls but there is no way I would ever use them in the house.

They look fantastic but even outside I would be worried about those flames..I'm thinking of rigging up some battery powered christmas candles to them next time..I did do one with the dollar tree skulls and some old bones and chain I had around and will post pics once I find them.
