Steps for making a candle holder
I found these wood taper candle holders at a a garage sale for .50
I cleaned the wood candle holders off and removed the metal piece inside that holds the taper candles in place. I spray painted them with white Rustoleum paint. I gave the candle holders a couple coats and let it dry completely.
Once the paint was dry, I added super glue to the top of each candle holder.
I purchased 2 vases at the dollar store, and I washed and dried them both. I placed the vases on top of the glue on the candle holder.
A second candle holder DIY
I used a glass taper candle holder and a crackle candle holder. Both of these were from the thrift store.
I cleaned both of the glass pieces by washing them, and I added Super Glue to the top of the taper candle holder.
I added the crackle vase to the top of the taper candle holder. I let that dry completely.
I added battery operated pillar candles to each of the larger candle holders, and a battery operated tea light to the smaller one.

For this last project I used a glass taper candle holder and a glass light shade.
I added Super Glue Fix All Adhesive to the top of the glass candle holder.
I added the glass lamp shade to the top of the glass taper candle holder and let that dry completely.
For this one I placed it outside on my porch table. I pulled apart a solar light and placed the light into the light fixture end of the lamp shade.

Candles are great in just about every room in your home. They’re great for ambiance and making your home smell lovely.
You can decorate candles by adding things to the outside of them, but if you’re planning to burn them you won’t want to add anything to the candle that might catch on fire. Plus the wax on the candle goes away as the candle burns so decorating the outside might not work out the best from that stand point too.
Yes, mason jars make great candle holders.
