Spider Web Candlesticks

had the idea for the candlesticks awhile back and originally they were going to go on the mantle but the mantle ended up going in a different direction so now they are on the side table. 

Anyways, these were easy and inexpensive to make. I started with 2 glass candlesticks from the Dollar Tree along with two candleholders. I spray painted the candlesticks black and covered the candle holders with spider web scrapbooking paper. I glued the candle holders to the candle sticks using E-6000. I turned them upside down, set a heavy book on them, and left them sitting overnight. 

Then I used some fake spider webbing (also from the Dollar Tree) along the base of the candlesticks and finished it off with a fake spider (that came with the bag of spider webbing) per a candlestick. I didn't glue down the spider web or spiders I simply wrapped it around the bottom of the candlestick and just placed it where I wanted it. 

And here they are on the little table with Noah's little "wish wish" (snowglobe) and "Boo" blocks.
