Creepy Candlesticks

First let me say I have not started decorating for Halloween.  =) I am busy making pieces and playing around with how I will display them later this month/early October.  This is a Pinterest-inspired project.  Lucky me, I had everything I needed!
I have a ton of these wood candlesticks.  I had painted and used them for other projects.  When I tire of them, I simply give them a fresh coat of paint.  This trio was perfect for this project.
I gave them all a few coats of black paint.  The jar is from a project I posted a week or so ago.  It's an old dressing jar that I also painted black.  I used E6000 glue to adhere it to the smaller of the candlesticks.
Then I got busy on the fun part: covering them with candle wax.  I just lit a candle and let the wax drip in random spots on the jar and the taller candlesticks.  
Super easy, right?  And so perfect for Halloween.  I'm thinking of displaying them on a stack of black books I picked up from a local thrift store, and using one of the flashcards I made last week.

Right now they are holding some of my French script candles, but I'm sure I'll be adding some Halloween-appropriate ones down the road.
