Making DIY candle holders from jars
To make your DIY candle holders prepare clean, dry jars. They can be any size as long as they match standard tealight. For a decoration I used a rope and cotton lace – both bought in Tiger store.
Step number one: cover the bottom of your jar with all purpose glue.
Second, wrap the bottom with a rope.
Now repeat it with cotton lace…
… and with the rope again. Your composition can be totally different of course, however I think the one I made is super cool ;)
At the top of the jar I made a knot, first puting a drop of glue on the rope so it didn’t untie itself. I left it to dry for 15 minutes and made smaller candle holder meanwhile.
At the very end a tied a bow on both jars and decorated it with super small shells I got from my Greek holidays. Simple, effective with a hint of memories … :) How do you like it?
