Faux Candle Chandelier Socket Covers

Want to make your chandelier socket covers (those little white tubes) schnazzy?
Fancy-schmancy? Classy?
Remove your tubes from the chandelier, line them all up, and drip hot glue down the sides of the plastic tube. It is a little bit more of an art form than it looks, but you’ll get the hang of it after doing just one.

Don’t like how your first one looks? (‘Cause at that point you were still a fake candle making noob.) Well it’s hot glue! Just peel it off and start again.

When your tubes are fully dried, string them onto a piece of string, tie a BIG KNOT in the bottom, hold the top of the string, and spray paint them your favorite color. I used old speaker wire. :)

I went with basic gloss white (since candles are glossy, aren’t they?), but I think Heirloom White would look good. If you want your candle to look old, rub some watered down brown paint on it to distress a bit.

Or use black with a white chandelier, that would look sooo cool! In fact I’m making a mental note to try it… ;)
