I found some candle holders at the thrift store and knew if I glued them together they’d look like a Christmas tree! I added an option for lighting as well.
Here are the 4 candle holders from the thrift store, and the 5th one would become the trunk.
Glass Candle Holder Christmas Tree Video
I E6000 the bottom of the first candle holder, and then I stacked the second candle holder on top of the first candle holder.
I repeated this process until all for candle holders were glued together.
I had this glass stopper that I had saved knowing it would be good for something and this was it! I E6000 that into the top of the stacked candle holders. I let this dry for 24 hours.
I then placed a color changing LED light into the “stand/trunk” candle holder.I placed the glued candle holders onto the top of it.
I just love how it turned out. After doing this I decided to flip that stand/trunk candle holder upside down and glued it into the tree shape to be more stable. The LED light now goes in the bottom of the entire tree.
You are so creative. This glass candle holder Christmas tree is darling.
Thank you so much Amy 🙂
