DIY Flameless Candle
Cut closet pole to desired length. Since closet poles are long cut you can make many of these flaemless candles. The lights are inexpensive and easy to use so take advantage of the length of the pole and make yourself a few of these Flameless candles.
Drill a hole through the center of the candle base you cut from the closet pole this is where the light wire will slide through
Paint candle base with white paint. 3 coats is needed to cover well. Let dry
Heat glue gun and grab glue sticks. Once hot apply drips to the candle base to look like wax drips. Begin at the top of the candle base and drag your glue gun downward. Make different length drips and layer the lengths to give it the look of wax.
Get base of bulb ready with a drill to open the bottom. As shown in the post pictures
Put light kits together and slide the wire up the center of the candle base. Use a small piece of duct tape to keep wire stable over the bottom hole on the candle base
Add a dot of glue carefully to the base of bulb and add to the top. This keeps the bulb stable
Add hot glue in a circular motion to the top of the candle base to resemble wax as shown in the post above
Add light brown wax or watered down brown craft paint lightly to the drips to look like soot
