How to make spooky Halloween candles

Your rating: None
Light up the darkness with some spooky designs to make your home part of the Halloween celebrations. Take your Dremel 300 Series and engraving cutter accessory and create patterns in the candle wax such as spiders, pumpkins and skulls.
What you'll need: 
Dremel 300 Series and engraving cutter 107 accessory
Candles (orange and black)
Draw your design of witches and pumpkins onto the candle with a pencil, pressing lightly initially and more firmly when you are happy with the design.
Using the Dremel 300 Series and engraving cutter 107, engrave the design onto the candle, working slowly and steadily so that the lines are of an even depth.
Brush the surface of the candle with a soft paintbrush to remove any excess wax.
