DIY glass candle holders

Candles and lanterns – your Christmas essentials

Candlelight creates a lovely, cosy atmosphere, so you can never have too many lanterns and candle holders at Christmas! If you’ve got any plain jam jars or old wine glasses, you can use edding gloss paint markers to transform them into decorative features. The metallic shades of gold, silver and copper are particularly festive, but you can choose from any of the gloss paint marker colours. Every pen is opaque, smudge-proof and quick-drying, so you'll get awesome results without any smudging.
