Make Life Lovely who have lots of great Halloween crafts.
One candelabra had a candleholder with a large square shape at the top, another had no rim under the candleholder but the one in the photo above was perfect because it had a small round candleholder to slip the toilet roll over and a rim under it for the toilet roll to stand on. It is my most gothic candelabra and suited the purpose wonderfully, even with a fifth arm missing. (It is so long since I bought it I can't remember if it was never there when I bought it or fell off at some stage.)
The most difficult part was getting the LED plastic candles in (real flames would be a OHS nightmare). On Make Life Lovely, she glued some material inside the rolls to hold the candles but our plastic candles only just fitted in the toilet rolls from the bottom but not from the top where bits of glue made the opening tighter. Apart from the tiny candles, we turned on candles before shoving then up the toilet rolls, or used a long stick like a pencil to turn on and off the ones that stuck in the top well. Sadly it was far easier for the rolls to topple off the candleabra than to turn the candles on and off.
Halloween lunch. I wonder how long they will last.
