I upcycled some candle holders that I found at the thrift store and turned them into glass flowers just in time for spring.

I found these 2 candle holders at our local Arc Thrift Store. I brought them home and washed them and cleaned them up.

I used E6000 for this project but you could use an adhesive of your choice. By using this glue I’ll be able to use my creation inside or out.

I squeezed the E6000 into the taper candle holder. I filled it up but saved room at the top.

I then placed the second candle holder’s stem into the top of the taper candle holder into the glue.

I let this dry for 24 hours.

Here is the completed creation and I think it looks like a flower.

You can add a battery operated LED light, tealight, or light source of your choice.

I made a variety of these glass flowers just in time for spring.
