If you’re looking to make a Harry Potter-themed Christmas tree, one of the trickiest yet most important details to nail are the floating candles that so spectacularly decorate the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Jen Yates, creator of EPBOT (previously featured here) and her husband John have come up with an awesome way to replicate those enchanted candles and they created a step-by-step tutorial so that you can do it too.

The candles are battery-operated with the top and bottoms removed. Faux wax drips were added using hot glue and then the candles were painted and artificially aged. The magical floating effect is achieved by attaching the candles to the ceiling with lengths of clear fishing line.

Click here for the complete tutorial.

For even more Harry Potter-themed DIY Christmas goodness, check out the beautiful Golden Snitch Ornaments that Jen made last year.

I can’t believe that just a few weeks ago I started patreon and already we have reached the first goal, definitely a new experience working with the system, I’m still getting used to it as well as of how produce the content for the supporters, so far I have uploaded high resolution files, process images, weekly drawings etc. but as a second goal I’m going to shoot for a new set of tutorials focused on drawing the figure, explaining the use of gesture, pose, construction and anatomy, what do you guys think?

I think fans are more interested in this kind of content and I think its fair to bring something good online as well. The tutorials will be posted as usual on my youtube channel www.youtube.com/user/Reiqws the high resolution video files plus all the material used to produce them will be available on the patreon site including the brushes I used for drawing. I hope this becomes an easy goal to reach with your help!

Please check my patreon here and let’s rock!
