DIY Candle Holders

These candle holders are one of my all time favorite DIY project. I love that they are so quick and easy to make, and that you can use them for pretty much anything.

Here I’d like to show you to kinds of candle holders. They both use small glass jars or drinking glasses as a base and don’t require a lot of supplies to make.

What you’ll need for the candle holders with yarn:

  • Assorted pretty and festive colored yarn
  • Textile bands for decorating
  • Hot glue
  • Tealights
  • A small drinking glass or glass jar

What you’ll need for the candle holders with sticks

  • A bunch of small sticks with a length of about 20 cm (= about 8 inches)
  • Jute tape or some string
  • Hot glue
  • Tealights
  • A small drinking glass or glass jar

Instructions for the candle holders with yarn:

  1. Clean your drinking glass to make sure the surface is’t impure.
  2. Start by placing a drop of hot glue at the bottom end of the glass.
  3. While the glue is still hot, stick the end of your ball of wool to it.
  4. Now start coating the glass in yarn by wrapping the yarn around the glass.
  5. Make sure that you are not leaving any spaces between the stings of yarn while wrapping.
  6. Once you’ve reached the top of the glass jar, place another drop of hot glue close to the edge and stick the end of your yarn to it.
  7. Cut off the end of the yarn as close a possible to the edge of the glass.
  8. To hide the beginning and end of your piece of yarn, place a decorative band over it.
  9. Use hot glue to secure the band.
  10. Done.

Instructions for the candle holders with sticks:

  1. Clean your drinking glass to make sure the surface isn’t impure.
  2. Use the hot glue to sick the small branches to your glass.
  3. Make sure not to leave any large gaps between two sticks.
  4. Secure the projects by tying a decorative band around the sticks. This will prevent them from sliding off the glass.
  5. Done.

Instead of using small sticks, using cinnamon sticks can add a lovely wintery scent to these candle holders. They always make nice eye-catchers as decorations but I also love to use the ones with yarn to keep my pencils and pens in. 😉
