Tutorial: Monogram Candle Holder

Wedding season is just around the corner and I would bet someone you know if not yourself is trying to come up with some inexpensive centerpieces. Heather and I had an awesome afternoon brainstorming and crafting together using Martha Stewart products. We came up with the very elegant candle holder which will have all your guests asking, "where you got those beautiful centerpieces?" If they only knew!

Project estimate:

  • Plastic champagne glasses, $1.00 for a 6 pack
  • Martha Stewart punch, on hand
  • Martha Stewart scrapbook paper, on hand
  • Martha Stewart glitter, on hand
  • Hot glue, on hand
  • Charm or bead, on hand
  • Clear thread or fishing line, on hand
  • White glue, on hand

Total: $1.00 and up

Using the punch make two matching pieces to place together. Sandwich two sides together with string in the middle. You will need to add a bead or some type of charm to the base to hold it down when hanging.

Place a small amount of glue in the bottom of the cup with the glue gun. Be careful to not get it on the sides of the cup.

Here comes the tricky part. Using a pencil make a small slit in the eraser and put string/thread into it. This will hold it in place to put it in cup. Push end of thread then into the glue and allow to set. Now you have your monogram in place.

Now onto the glitter. Apply a small amount of glue to the rim of the cup. Then cover it with glitter by rolling it in a plate filled with glitter.

Using the same technique glue the base of the cup and glitter it. Once it has dried you can place a punch in the center to put your candle on.

    [...] Summer at Dollar Store Crafts made this sweet candle holder with plastic champagne glasses, paper punches, and a handful of other craft supplies on hand. Her clever idea for suspending something inside the overturned glass is adorable. Check out the full tutorial. [...]

    I love the idea but won’t the candle wax melt the plastic champagne glass?
