This is a fun and easy scroll saw pattern set that I created for the Halloween season.
The large pillar candle holder is made from 1/4” birch plywood and slotted to fit together to form the bat-shaped base. I then scrolled the ‘rail’ around the candle table out of 1/8” plywood in cute moon, star and bats to enhance the design. (While the base is very sturdy, I recommend using only battery operated candles.)
I also made complimentary tea light candle holders out of smaller bats, as well as some spooky place card holders. I found some cute Halloween stamps that I could print out myself on Etsy. There are loads of darling digital paper patterns you can purchase from there!
All in all – I think it makes a wonderful table display or vignette. They would look great at a Halloween party table or a fireplace mantle or just about anywhere.
I painted the pieces solid black (you could also spray paint them) and then I used DecoArt Glamour Dust Glitter Paint on the front and back sides of the pieces to give them extra sparkle. They sure were fun to make.
Thank you for looking!
