DIY Candle Holder and Candle Craft Ideas

Even though people have not used candles as their primary light source in the home for over a century, we still enjoy the atmosphere they create.

In my home, there is a cupboard devoted strictly to candles!!  I love the scent of candles, the warm glow of the flame, and the cozy feeling of burning candles.

Candle options are readily available, and you can learn more about making candles on our homemade candle page.

However, candle holder options have become the craze in recent decades!  I remember my family having two matching candle holders that were used for all occasions. Now the options are nearly limitless.

The designer candle holders can get expensive, but DIY candle holders are so much fun to make, and most of them are just stunning. This page has wonderful links to inexpensive candle holder ideas and candle holder crafts.

There is something for everyone from farmhouse style, to rustic, to classic! 

A gift that I have planned for my sisters and friends this holiday is a lovely teacup candle!  Simply scour the thrift stores for inexpensive vintage teacups and matching saucers, then use the technique below to pour candles into the teacups.

I’m going to use permanent glue to attach the cup to the saucer to make a DIY candle holder.

They are so pretty and useful too!

What can I make out of candle holders?

Use dollar store candle holders to make wonderful and unique statements for your home decor. Just add a few craft items, and the resulting decorative items made from inexpensive dollar store candle holders are amazing!

Dollar store candle holders can be glued to bowls or dishes to make decorative displays that can be used for plants, seasonal decorations, and so much more.

Scroll down to find candle holder crafts, such as the magical Halloween decorative holder, kitchen decor, and apothecary jars. 

The candle holder ideas and candle crafts below are so fun and unique that you will surely want to try more than one!
