Halloween is just around the corner, missing a few days to celebrate with the children the most gruesome of the year!!! And if you are missing any ideas on how to decorate the House here are some nice candles shaped like a pumpkin, Ghost and bat with which you can set the mood!
Are simple chores to accomplish and can be a way to engage the kids and their friends in a fun activity (of course under parental supervision).
Material (for all in glass)
– Hardening modelling paste (type Das)
– tempera paints;
– electric wire;
– heavy duty;
For the pumpkin-shaped candle
Shaping a big ball of dough and mimic the lines of the pumpkin with a toothpick. Model 2 sausages for feet, 2 hands shaped knobs and a scoop for the nose. For the leaves, flattening a bit of dough and cut out a star shape with a knife.
Attach nose and feet with toothpick soaked in glue. Cutting board with 2 wire cutter. Load wet glue ends in the hands and body. Glue the leaf. Thrust 2 wires twisted together for the tendrils. Put a candle in the pumpkin for about 1 cm. Dry pasta long enough. Carefully remove the candle. Paint the pumpkin. Dry.
For the ghost-shaped candle
Shaping a roll flared and wavy at the base. Prepare nose, hands and feet. Assemble the parts by toothpick and 2 pieces of electrical wire wet with glue. Insert the spark plug. Let it dry, then paint.

Shaping a big ball, a small nose and 2 rolls for feet. Model 2 ears. Secure the part by toothpick soaked in glue. Cut 2 cardboard wings. Rub glue the ends and insert them into the body. Insert a candle. Allow to dry and paint.
