Happy Day of the Dead everyone! To celebrate the holiday, or remedy those days when you need a skull candle quick and don't have 2 month to wait on Lucky Mojo, here's the old fashioned way to carve your own skull candle. This is what people did before you could just buy all those shaped figurals.
This skull candle is made from one of those cream-colored ball candles you can get at most home decor shops -- these were 2 in a pack for $6. Some eyes and nose-holes and teeth, plus any other shaping you need, and voila. This took maybe 30 or 40 minutes to carve.
