Design your own candle holders

Decorate your own glass candle or tea-light holders for Christmas using edding gloss paint markers to create wonderful results

With their warm, golden glow, glass candle and tea-light holders add a touch of festive spirit during the Christmas season. Using edding gloss paint markers, you can add your very own decorative designs to plain glass Christmas candle holders and transform them quickly and easily, and at relatively little cost.

They're really easy to paint and decorate, so even novices will be able to create wonderful results in next to no time.

The gloss paint marker ink is highly opaque, making it ideal for almost all surfaces – especially dark or transparent ones where they show up really well. A choice of stroke widths and colours are available, including the popular festive colours gold, silver and copper.
