DIY candle holder decoration

Folded paper candle holder

We probably all remember the fun we had as kids, making paper aeroplanes by folding up pieces of paper and making them fly. But the art of paper folding (origami) also offers many other fantastic possibilities, such as this easy-to-make paper candle holder. Once they’re folded into shape, the candle holders can be decorated with edding permanent spray in beautiful colours, transforming them into unique, eye-catchers. In total, there are 37 colours to choose from, including the latest popular shades. In our example, we used champagne gold, neo mint and pastel rose as they go together beautifully. To make it easier for those who are new to spray painting, we’ve summarised the key spray-painting tips and tricks in our Spray Basics section. This means that even beginners can achieve fantastic results before long!
