Ghostly Candle Holder

Ghostly Candle Holder


You'll go batty making these cute and easy Halloween themed candle holders and vases. Light casts a beautiful glow through the sugar coating; illuminating the vinyl design underneath. We used our Sugar Crystal Candle Holder project as inspiration but added another layer of spooky fun! These are a great, inexpensive Halloween decorations.



  1. Spread layer of sugar onto a plate and set aside.
  2. Trace a silhouette on black vinyl and cut out.
  3. Attach vinyl cut outs to glass container with sticker backing.
  4. Paint your glass container liberally with Modge Podge. The more Modge Podge you use, the better the sugar will stick to the glass.
  5. Roll your candle holder evenly over the sugar on the plate. Once it's coated, pat the sugar down with your hands to be sure it is evenly coated.
  6. Let it dry for at least a couple of hours before using. You can lightly spray a clear spray paint or shellac over the candle holder after it's dry to prevent the sugar from falling off over time. Seal in a plastic bag and store in an airtight container.
