I know, I know… it’s only July, but before you know it, it will be October and that is all the more reason we should be planning for Halloween already!
These adorable ceramic ghost tea light holders are perfection!
When friends see a photo of this ghostie, they demand that I give it to them. Nope. All mine. Well-made, clever design. I love everything about yet. This year, for the first time ever, we decorated for Halloween in September. Fighting back against the pandemic. This little one makes me smile.Janet Margrave – Etsy Reviewer
They’re perfect for Halloween and would look great anywhere in your home.
The ghost tea light holders are made of white earthenware clay and are completely handmade… even down to the shape because they don’t use any molds in the process.
Love my little ghost tea light. So cute and simple. Perfect addition to Halloween decor.Kate Hammond – Etsy Reviewer
Making these is not simple, it requires many stages to get them finished.
First, they form the clay, then it has to dry for a few days.
After it has dried for a few days they have to fix any imperfections before placing it into the kiln for firing.
They are fired at 1000 degrees Celcius, which is 1900 degrees Fahrenheit, man… that’s hot!
After the first firing in the kiln, they are then glazed, and then the glaze has to dry.
Once the glaze has dried, they go back into the kiln to be fired at 1040 degrees Celcius, which is 1920 degrees Fahrenheit.
That second round is about 19-20 hours of firing and cooling!
