Decorating your dorm room for Halloween is always fun, so show off your creativity with creepy floating candles.

These handmade candles hang from clear string from the ceiling and appear to float. If there are a lot of them hanging from the ceiling, it makes you feel like you are in the Great Hall from Harry Potter, perfect for this upcoming weekend.

  • Toilet paper or paper towel tubes
  • White paint
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
