Feed the Flames Fill glass hurricanes or cylinders about a third of the way with candy corn and rest a pillar in the center of each. The candy will keep the candles standing upright; just don’t leave lit candles unattended.
Creepy Candles Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.
Line up basic pillar candles to spell out a spooky message. Hot-glue beads, rhinestones, or seeds into a letter shape on each candle, then place the candles on candlesticks of varying heights.
