Polymer Clay Halloween Votive Candles


I found this cool craft using glass votive candle holders, and my old favorite, polymer clay. This comes courtesy of PCPolyzine circa 2003.  Check out the link for the step-by-step, but I’ll give you the basic gist.

You’ll want to find a glass votive and cover it with a uniform thickness of orange polymer clay, smoothing it onto the glass and trimming off any bulk at the bottom. In this version, the author traced on a face with a stylus and then cut it out with an X-acto knife. (You could also cut out shapes from glow-in-the-dark clay and adhere it, if you wanted. Then you could see the face even after the candle was blown out!)  Bake according to directions….. etc, etc, etc.

This would also make a cute gift for a neighbor, teacher, or friend… and you could take embellishment up a notch and add some leafs and vines to the base…. you could get really creative with this!

Have fun, and happy claying!
