This DIY tutorial is probably one of the only places you will ever see the discount shop and the word elegant mentioned in the same sentence.
I made these very elegant knock-offs of a popular William Sonoma Home candle holder after seeing them on a few blogs. They are so easy and inexpensive to make that I not only made one, but the three you see here. Cost for all three – $6.00 – $2 each. You can find what you need to make them at The Dollar Tree. $1 for the vase and $1 for the candlestick holder base. They have two different size vases – I used the larger ones.
They look very similar to the expensive version, don’t you think?
- Glass candlestick holder
- Glass vase with straight sides
- Glass and Bead glue or Clear Silicone Adhesive
Turn vase upside down and apply a 1 ½” diameter circle of glue to center.
Center candlestick holder upside down on glue and let dry.
All done – it just needs a pillar style candle. I found mine at Wal-Mart.
They are such a classic decorating accessory and look perfect in many different settings-
Lined up on a dining table
Or in a bath to create a spa like mood when bathing.
And now that the warm weather months are upon us – they can add ambiance to dinner alfresco.
If you don’t have a Dollar Tree nearby you can shop around your home as you may already have a few candlesticks and vases that can be glued together to make unique versions of these pedestals candleholders. I have seen them made with wine glasses, pretty china, teacups, and brass candlesticks that you can spray paint any colour to match your decor.
