Floating candles, such as the one in the Harry Potter movies, will add a spooky touch to your Halloween decorations. In this easy DIY project, make your own floaters and add a little fright to your holiday.

  1. Mask off each candle flame with painter's tape.
  2. Apply the black spray paint to the entire candle following the directions on the can. Let it dry.
  3. Using the Vintage Gold spray paint, apply it heavier on the bottom and lighter on top to create an ombre effect on each candle. Let it dry for 24 hours before full use.
  4. Attach fishing wire with hot glue and let it dry before hanging.
  5. Hang your candles from the ceiling to give them a floating effect.
