Glass Candle Holder

I made this a few years ago after seeing it done on mason jars, click here. I actually made two but one broke ūüė¶ This is very simple and doesn’t cost much to make.

What You Need:

  • Glass Candle Holder or Mason Jar
  • Fabric of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Small bowl
  • Candle

I found my glass candle holder from Dollar Tree, the fabric I already had but you can find fabric at any craft store or Wal-Mart.

To begin you will need to determine how long you would need to cut your strips, I made mine 3 1/2 inches long. I didn’t over lap them over the top but I did on the bottle.¬†¬†After you find out the length you can start cutting your strips about 1 inch wide. The strips don’t need to be cut perfectly since you will be overlapping them when you glue them to the candle holder.

Once all your strips are cut, pour some glue into the small bowl and add a little bit of water (you want it to be slightly thick) and mix it well.

Take one strip and submerge it into the glue, using your thumb and pointer finger run down the strip getting rid of excess glue. Place the strip on to the candle holder, I placed mine on the outside you can put it in the inside (remember to have the pattern facing out).

Using your finger and rub down the strip to get out any air bubbles out. Repeat the process, slightly overlapping the strips until your candle holder is covered. Allow 24 hours to dry before using.

Very simple and inexpensive to make, you can make some for yourself or as a gift. If you do make some be sure to tag me on Instagram. I would love to see.
