Faux Stone Candle

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cubes: 2", four
    • Block: 4" x 12" x 2"
  • Textured paint: dark gray, black
  • Putty knives: wide and narrow
  • Small, stiff brush
  • Utility knife
  • Pencil
  • Tooth picks
  • Tea light refills
  • Chopstick or skewer
  • Low temp glue gun and glue sticks

Steps:

  1. Center tea light refill on 2" cube of STYROFOAM™ brand foam; trace around tea light with sharp pencil. Using utility knife, carve out a 3/8" deep hole; smooth bottom using blunt end of knife. Test fit tea light and adjust hole as needed. Repeat with remaining cubes.
     
  2. Insert chopstick or skewer into bottom of cube and use as a handle. Spread a thin layer of dark gray textured paint on sides and top of cubes using small putty knife. Finish does not need to be smooth; a rough texture adds realism. Using paint brush, paint sides of hole. Stand chopstick in a glass while paint dries.
     
  3. With narrow putty knife, apply a thick coat of black textured paint to the 2" sides of the foam block. Use edge of the putty knife blade to create a rough texture. Spread black textured paint generously on top of base; spread smooth with wide putty knife. Let dry.
     
  4. Spread low temperature glue on one end of toothpick and insert half way into base of foam cube; spread low temperature glue on base of cube and toothpick and insert into base.
     
  5. Add tea lights.
