Bonus decorating tip: How to make bleeding candles
You'll need: White and black pillar candles; red candles or sealing wax
1. Use a warmed spoon to scrape out a portion in the center of each pillar candle. Make it about 1 inch deep, but leave 1/2 inch around the outside edges.
2. Place the pillar candles onto a sheet of parchment paper.
3. Light the red candle or sealing wax and allow the wax to dribble onto the pillar candles, pooling a little in the center, dripping over the edges, and eventually pooling a little at the bottom.
4. Trim the wick so it's not more than 1/2 inch long.
