I wanted to keep things as simple as possible for Boo’s party this year, but I do love to make a few bits & pieces to make it feel more personal & special. So, with our theme in mind…along with animal party hats, and safari topped gift jars, I made these really fun & easy DIY animal candles as cake toppers…
You will need:
\\ pointed screwdriver/skewer/other implement (strong enough to make/start holes in animals)
\\ candle holders & candles
\\ self tapping cup/wall hook (optional if you’re pointy tool will make holes deep enough alone)
\\ small plastic animals (I got a large box via eBay, but have also seen them at The Range(UK))
1. trim your candle holders leaving a small stubb
2. start/make a small whole in the back of the animals (I found this worked best by starting the hole with the pointy implement & then screwing in the hook to make it deeper & larger…the plastic was relatively easy to get into though & if you’re feeling strong, you may not need the hook part)
3. add a spot of superglue around the candle holder stubb & base and push into the hole.
4. leave glue to dry, add candles…and, tah~dah!
