DIY: Summer Candle Holders

Tuesday, July 08, 2014 Sara Wallflower 19 Comments

Hello, everybody!

Summer has started a couple of weeks ago and if you haven’t already decorated your room with some summer decorations, then now it's the time!

I’m going to show you how to quickly make simple summer candle holders. I did them with my mother and sister, so it’s also a great way of spending some quality time with family :).

First, you need:

 -a jam jar (or any glass jar/cup...);


-strips/ bows/ other decorations;


-small candles;

-a glue gun.

Now take a jar and fill it with sand. You can choose up to where you’ll fill it- I filled mine to about the middle of the jar. 

Then take any strip or bow or tape of any colour and tie it up at the top of the jar. You can also glue strip on the jar or you can wrap the whole jar with it.

After that, take some shells and glue them on strips, jar, put them inside of the jar...

When you finish, put a small candle inside of the jar, light it up and your summer candle holder is done!

I really enjoyed doing my candle holders and I think so will you, as you can free your imagination and do your own candle holders however you want to. They bring a little bit of summer freshness in my room and that way my room is less boring. They’re also easy to do and you can put them outside or inside. I put my mother’s on the outside table, but my sister and I put them in our bedrooms.
