Title: Spooktacular Halloween Wall Lights!
Post by: Urban Threads on October 06, 2008 08:20:52 PM
I made a neat discovery...

What started all this was that I bought a ceramic pumpkin candle holder set that was useless, because when you put the cover on, the flame went out.  So, to solve my rubbish candle problem, I went out to target and bought some flamless LED tea lights.  They're little flame shaped lights that flicker like real flame.  Once I got home though, I discovered a much more useful place for them...



Behind my handmade masks!  They look really awesome because they flickr like real flames, so you just have creepy glowing eyes with moody lighting.  I only had two fully made masks I crafted awhile ago, and I wanted a few more for cheap.



So with a simple craft mask and another tea light... I made more!



They're really cheap and really make a cool effect.  I'm thinking of lining a wall with a line of white ones when I throw my halloween party in a few weeks.  they make really swank wall lamps.

This would be great hanging from the inside of windows instead of having a plain pumpkin.

these are such an awesome idea!!

I'm terrified of masks, so I probably couldn't haven them in my house without having nightmares though =[


Do you have pictures of the masks that you made?? They look really cool from what I can see!

That is incredibly brilliant. I really hope I remember this the next time I go all out with Halloween decorations.

That looks neat.  I am just thinking about different ideas that I can do with my group at work. I work with handy capt adult. But I do like how you light up the walls with the faces with the lights in them.   :)
