Do you ever want something unique for your Christmas table? I know that I do. Not only at Christmas time, but for any holiday or occasion. My Recycled Tin Can Candle Holders are the perfect solution.
And all you need are a few components, your creativity and very little money. That always helps, right?
Here are the components you will need:
1- bag bowl filler (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
1- roll sparkly ribbon(another Hobby Lobby find)
2-empty tin cans of varying sizes
glue sticks (I used A LOT!)
sharp scissors or knife
measuring tape, if needed
As soon as I spotted the bowl filler balls, I KNEW I could make something unique and festive with them.
For the base of the Recycled Tin Can Candle Holders I used 1 large and 1 small soup can.
This sparkly ribbon is just what I needed to add texture and variety to my candle holders. I found this at Hobby Lobby. It is very thick and is a two-sided ribbon.
Before starting, cut the filler balls in half like I did here.
With your glue gun hot and filled with glue sticks-Begin to make your own patterns. I did one with a horizontal pattern and the other vertical.
Create whatever YOU like.
*Warning! The hot glue WILL make the tin can VERY hot. So wear gloves and be very, very careful.
There was no actual pattern. I did try to mix up the colors and sizes on the tin can as I glued the filler balls on, with ribbon spread throughout.
As for the ribbon-I tried to make it so that it was seen from every angle.
When you make your own, you could do one candle holder in just one color. Or use both colors in different patterns.
You could even use a contrasting ribbon color for a whole new look or feel.
These super simple, inexpensive and unique Recycled Tin Can Candle Holders can be made within an hour to an hour and a half.
As I think about it-these would also be pretty for a bridal or baby shower, or New Years Eve, too…
