Creating these Thrifty DIY Moss Candle Holders could not have been any easier. With Dollar Store items I was able to set a lovely Spring table for very little money and beautiful style.
This post is part of the monthly Thrifty Style Team collaboration. The 2nd Friday of each month my talented blog friends gather together. We like to share our thrifty decor, crafts or money saving ideas with you.
Thanks to Julie at Redhead Can Decorate for hosting the Thrifty Style Team and creating this amazing idea,
I will leave all the links below for you at the end of this post.
Let me show you how I made my Thrifty DIY Moss Candle Holders and everything you will need to make your own.
What you will need:
2 round Styrofoam forms (I bought mine at Dollar Tree)
1 large bag of reindeer moss
1 bottle tacky glue
1 small carving or butter knife
I also bought greenery stems, but later decided not to use them at this time.
The first step is to apply tacky glue using a sponge paint brush to the top of the round Styrofoam piece.
Next, place reindeer moss onto tacky glue. Hold moss with fingers until it has adhered to the Styrofoam.
It will take about 15-30 seconds for the moss to stick. So, be patient. Especially when you are working on the sides. Take your time as you attach the moss to the Styrofoam piece.
The moss will want to fall off. So, hold it securely until it stays. Continue this process until the sides are covered. The same process was used when I made a moss wreath. (I tried using a hot glue gun, but was unsuccessful.)
Set aside until completely dry. This may take about 3 to 5 hours, depending on your weather.
You may need to go back and patch any spots that were missed.
Once the glue and moss are dry, use a knife to cut a “small” hole in the middle. Be sure it is a small hole, as this will be where you insert the taper candle. And you want it to stand straight and secure. Not at an angle with the possibility of falling over.
Once the candle is set into the Styrofoam, place the finished moss candle holder on a vintage tea saucer.
Now you have a beautiful piece to add to any tablescape. It has a touch of Spring with a hint of vintage style.
