Jen of EPBOT and her husband John are applying some Harry Potter magic to their Christmas tree this year. We saw the golden snitch ornaments they made, and now they’ve come up with a way to replicate the look of the floating candles we see in the Great Hall in the films.
They bought battery operated candles from The Dollar Tree and removed the tops and bottoms, added faux wax drips with hot glue, painted and aged them, and attached them to the ceiling with clear fishing line. The result is so pretty that I’m considering inviting myself to their home to see the candles in person. Or I guess I could make my own.
The craziest part? This beautiful Harry Potter themed tree is still a work in progress. What else will they add?
See some photos of the candles in progress after the break.
