Materials

  • Silhouette Stencils

  • Heavyweight Black Card

  • Craft Knife

  • 18-Gauge Wire

  • Tape

  • Pliers

  • Tealights and Glass Tealight Holders

Directions

  • Print out the spooky stencil of your choice (or feel free to design your own!). Trace the stencil onto black card and cut them out (watching fingers!) with a craft knife.

  • Straighten a length of your wire and tape one end to the back of a card cut-out template.

  • Bend the wire into a circle large loop to secure the wire around the tea light holder. The cut-out card should sit around the back lip of the glass.

  • Be sure to use a candle holder that is taller than the tea light in order to keep the flame away from the cut-out (card on fire WOULD be scary!).

  • Position your candles and move them closer or further away from the wall to create smaller or larger shadows and create your perfect eerie atmosphere.

  • Don't forget, you can choose any kind of template you like! Witches, pumpkins, vampires, boys and bats all make for very spooky shadows!
