Halloween candle - step 2

Light up the darkness with some spooky designs to join in the Halloween celebrations at home. It's really easy to create patterns in candle wax such as spiders, pumpkins and skulls. Just follow our step-by-step guide.

Step One

Draw your design of spiders, witches or pumpkins onto the candle with a pencil, pressing lightly initially and more firmly when you are happy with the design.

Step Two

Using a Dremel 300 multi-tool and engraving cutter, engrave the design onto the candle, working slowly and steadily so that the lines are of an even depth.

Step Three

Brush the surface of the candle with a soft paintbrush to remove any excess wax.
