Glass Candle Gift
This candle idea is nothing new if you've been around Blogland at all. By simply gluing some type of container onto a candlestick, you get a nice, yet inexpensive, hurricane glass container to fill with all sorts of fun things.
I have not seen this exact model out there, although surely it has to be. To make my version, pick up these candle holders at the Dollar Tree ($1 each)
and glue them onto a glass candlesticks using E6000 glue.
The one pictured here is also from the Dollar Tree ($1 each)
I prefer to find candlesticks at garage sales, because they are actually much nicer and run between . 50-$1 each.
I have a set on the top of my piano and just
change the decor with the season.
Giving a pair makes a wonderful gift........
.......but an even lovelier gift is to put together
several little bags of fillers.......
.......take pictures of the various designs you've come up with.......
and give a little photo book of ideas with the candleholders.
Your non-crafty friends will appreciate the extra thought.
Hopefully the pictures throughout this post
will give you lots of ideas to try.
The concavity of the jar allows a wreath to stay put
just by bending the wire form in a bit.
This wreath wouldn't stay up,
so a touch of hot glue holds it in place.
I'm using a glade candle inside of mine
The shape of the candle
matches the shape of the jar.
Aren't they elegant for just a few bucks?!!!
