Candle holder upcycling idea

Create stylish candle holders from jars, lids and the like

We have to admit that we simply love our stylish candlesticks! You’ve probably already got the materials for these eye-catchers lying around at home – empty jam jars, water bottle lids, make-up containers, wooden rings from old curtain rails and much more besides. All of the parts are decorated using permanent spray in the colour of your choice before being glued on top of each other in the shape of a pyramid – and there you have it: your candle holder is ready! You can add unique highlights using neon colours to give the design an extra bit of oomph. Larger jars can also be used as vases. Stickers can be removed, with no residue left behind, using our highly practical label remover marker.
