Over The Top Halloween House!!

The most amazing Halloween house that I have ever seen!
Behind this monstrosity of a display is someone's home! This really makes me want to step it up next year! So much detail everywhere you look on this one.
At night the whole house is lit up and spooky music plays.

You can see from the side view that the whole front of the house has been built out as a broken pirate ship!! I was told that they build this every year and it takes more than six weeks!! All the wood parts are trashed every year!

DIY Faux Halloween Candles

I came across some faux Halloween candles on the internet and I just had to make some!
We have an eight tier candle holder that I pull down every year for Halloween that works perfect with the "spooky" décor. I have never bought candles for it since there are Eight and would cost too much!!
Faux candles made out of toilet paper rolls and hot glue are PERFECT! 

After placing some tape in an "x" inside the roll to hold the tea light, cover the roll in hot glue all over to create a melting candle effect.

After the hot glue dries, paint them black and glaze with silver after the black dries.
I got a two pack of tea lights at Dollar Tree, so 50 cents each!

I am still in the process of setting up everything, so I will be back with more soon!
