Do you have a spare 60-seconds? Do you need more spooky Halloween decor for your home? Are you interested in super simple DIY projects? Do you follow Christine McConnell on Instagram? If you answered ‘yes’ to even one of these questions, then you must check out Christine’s newest DIY spot, released by Netflix as an enjoyable sampling for her new baking series, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. If you are in need of a creepy, expressive, tree candle and have a minute to spare, then look no further because this mini-project is spooky, efficient and creative, much like Christine McConnell herself.



Christine is known for her lavish DIY projects ranging from the intricate embroidery of her clothing and costumes, to larger-than-life exterior holiday. Made popular by her cookbook Deceptive Desserts: A Lady’s Guide to Baking Bad! and undeniably wild social media presence, she can bake up an exact replica of any monster from our favorite horror flicks like PredatorGremlins, Hocus PocusAlien: CovenantFriday the 13th, and Stranger Things. Her handiwork is uncanny, yet has her sweet, sophisticated signature look complete with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar, of course.


Now that she is headlining her own series, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell, found exclusively on Netflix, the photographer, baker, and author “will welcome viewers into her terrifyingly delicious home. In every episode she will bake, sculpt and sew to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor…” 

In this quick tutorial preview, Christine guides you step-by-step to create your own creepy candles right at home. All you’ll need are a few household items including:

  • paper towel rolls
  • aluminum foil
  • parafin wax
  • cotton wicks

With perfectly paced visuals, simple text instructions, and the commentary of a quirky Henson Alternative puppet or two, Christine shows you how to easily turn average materials and ingredients into magical, macabre, aesthically pleasing pieces! Be sure to have some carving tools handy!

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is now available to stream on Netflix, just in time for one of her favorite celebrations of the year: Halloween! Be sure to keep an eye out on her darling Victorian home. It’s under some severely scary transformation renovations.
