Hello, Carisa from Camp Pretty here with another DIY! This tutorial is
really simple and you need very few materials! I love the look of gold and
wood grain together (it’s also very Sugar & Cloth!), so these cute little DIY retro faux wood candle holders are my new favorite thing.
Its a great inexpensive way to instantly make your decor look much much
higher end, and you can finally break down and buy the not-so-cute-candle that smells good now that you can spice it up a bit…
First spray each cylinder with gold spray paint, and let it dry completely.
Its helpful to wrap adhesive liner around your cylinder before you stick
it on to mark the size you would like. Make sure when you are cutting the
size you would like, that you leave an extra inch for the height that will wrap
around the bottom.
Stick the adhesive liner to your cylinder leaving the inch over hand on
the bottom. With the inch overhand you will cut slits 1/4 inch apart.
Then one by one pull to bottom and stick on. It works best to have a
straight cylinder rather than an angled one when it come to wrapping around
the adhesive. If your cylinder is angled I would suggest making a quick
template before cutting to ensure that it lines up in the back.
Once they’re spray and wrapped, place your candle in and your done!
A small cluster of these would look so great as a party centerpiece and
this technique would also work wonderfully for any kind of cylinder
holder, pencil holder, planting pot or flower vase! Do you all have any empty places around the house that these DIY candle holders would fill?
