I’m going to show you How To Make Halloween floating candles decoration ideas Inspired by Harry Potter Starry Sky today, so if you enjoyed it, please bookmark it and share it with the others.
I’ve been making them for a long, and I believe I’ve got the procedure down pretty well. I’ll be posting more Harry Potter articles soon, so stay tuned.
Halloween Floating Candles at Home
You begin with a paper towel roll, but I didn’t have any. Instead, I used a tube of wrapping paper and cut it into sections.
I am now ready to use these tubes. I want to start by making a few little divots.
Essentially, what am I doing?
Making it look like a candle that has been burning a while is now the goal, so I believe that’s fine. The next step is to start dripping hot glue down the edges.
You can always use it on the low setting if you want to avoid getting burned. It would be best if you kept in mind that it drips a little bit better when it is in the hotter setting. Another significant aspect is that it doesn’t need to be perfect because the wax design naturally falls off the candle.
It looks best, in my opinion, if I take a small amount of wax and split it off to the side with a drip. To do this, I usually go over the entire candle with longer strips, some lower than others, making sure they are not entirely even.
Try as best you can to mimic the peculiar ways wax falls.
For a short while, this has been cooling. The trick is the first of four layers I plan to apply. The bottom layer descends the furthest, followed by one that extends 3/4 of the way, one at the top, and the purpose for doing this.
When done, make it appear as though it has burned several times.
Therefore, the very top edge will receive the final layer of glue that I want to apply. It helps to smooth out any edges on top that are a little bit raggedy from being cut. We will need to make an effort to remove every last piece of string before painting it.
The adhesive will appear more realistically painted if fewer strings are visible beneath the paint. The following step is to place the tube’s bottom circular portion on some cardboard and trace the circle there, getting as near the bottom size as you can.
I will cut that out, serving as the bottom of our tube.
But rather than merely looking like a tube, make it more resemble a candle.
Painting it is fun since it suddenly resembles a real candle when the paint is applied and no longer looks like a tube and hot glue. Just paint the entire structure now.
Okay, here’s a crucial tip: Before you paint and prepare your candles, ensure they fit inside the tubes. Otherwise, you’re going to have problems.
If there are no glue drips inside, this one will fit, so I’ll clean that off.
Get the adhesive off because it is uneven and not precisely like this. You will need to paint the interior about an inch below the surface so that white will show if anything does.
And it’s not brown, indicating that we created it from a paper towel roll instead of toilet paper.
Finally, our candles finish!

We’ll be placing our candles on this ceiling, so I need to darken it to make it appear like a night sky.
So I have two thin plastic tablecloths. I placed it on the ground because that’s roughly the height I need.
And after taping them together, I’ll paint them like the night sky.
I dabbed some beautiful metallic blue on the tablecloth, and then, to make it more like a galaxy, I added a thin layer of grey, followed by a thin layer of red, all using sponges. I have a solid magical mysticism. I will start splatter painting in my kitchen as my next project.
I am creating the Stars in this manner. We should add more stars to the blue portions I’ve already completed just because it appears more galactic.
I believe that is how the sky primarily appears, with star clusters rather than just equally spaced stars.
So, I’m attempting to achieve that. I’ll start with my gold splattering and alternate between white, red, and blue gold hues. It won’t move very slowly and isn’t at all thick. I thus thinned down some acrylic paint by combining it with water, making it simple to sputter.
All of these candles are complete in the end. These are dry.
They appear lovely.
We applied all the hot glue to them just as we had planned to create the illusion that it was melting, and now we are ready to use our candles. You can use a thick needle or a nail to help me get what I need.
I’ll pierce the cardboard with a hole. There are a few things I should consider. How deep does this tiny groove go
Make the candle appear below this location since the cord holding it up here will prevent it from falling to the candle’s bottom.
I’ll thus poke it right here. Because it’s challenging to get the needle through hot glue, I’m also attempting to drive between the bond. I’m pushing it the rest of the way with pliers.
And last, to make it work.
Now that I have a hole large enough for my fishing line to fit through, let’s face it, folks. Both magic and invisibility exist in reality.
But we have to do this without any justification. I have a reasonably short ceiling, so it won’t hang very far, so I’ll cut it to approximately the length I want it to be and tie a knot.
We can now hang it up high and fly because the starry sky is now arid. I’m a rapper, is that rapping?
I’ve nearly completed it. I’m tidying it up and trimming the edges quickly, and then we’re done with this section at least. At that point, it’s time to hang the candles!
A difficulty I discovered is that occasionally the candle cannot fit within the tube because it is too large. It is what takes place.
The best way to deal with that is to take a piece of tape and construct a smallholder. It leans to one side or the other or can even fall in.
When you put the candle in, it is perfectly held in place by the tape strung from one side to the other. I’m ecstatic. You can tell we’ve been hanging these up for a while.
I take the string, tie a knot, and attach a tack to put them up.
Right there to support it as I’ve been moving, okay, but I believe it needs a longer one here and a shorter one here.
I believe it needs a short one like this one to make it look more like the movie: double the effort, trouble. I sincerely hope you like this tutorial because it turned out very well.
Because I adore it so much, I will leave it up at least until Christmas. It is pretty cool. Please remember to bookmark. Thank you so much for watching. Also, you may follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
I have many other articles that you can see over on my channel, as well as more Harry Potter ones that will be released shortly.
Alright. Next time, we’ll see you guys. You can follow me every day on The Beach House and here.
There is almost an echo, which makes it even more incredible because it is in my home. Do you hear that? I genuinely enjoy it!
