CHRISTMAS

A great Dollar Tree Christmas craft

This is a great project. I have a number of these candles started and will show you the pictures when I get them done.

In the meantime, let me explain what these are. These are the tall glass candle holders/candles you can get at Dollar Tree for, guess what, a dollar! Who knew? 🙂

Anyway….

As I thought about them, I I knew I wanted to make them reusable and figured once they burned down, they would be unusable. I mean they wouldn’t hold a tapered candle and it would be too hard to refill them. I thought about those cheap little tea lights from Dollar Tree but that would mean you would have to turn them on and off. That would work, of course.

But I wanted a real flame. So…….I decided to dig out enough of the candle so I could put in a tea light. It was really easy to do, I just used a spoon and started scooping. You can see it in one of the photos.

Next, I used some flannel I had used to make napkins and wrapped them around the glass and secured with a glue stick. I had gray trim at the top and the bottom, tied a red ribbon around the middle, and inserted a twig of holly berries.

They turned out really cute.

I have a number of them I’m working on and will show you when they’re done. I had all the materials so the only thing I bought was the candles. But even if you had to buy all the supplies, they would still cost very little. You could use scrapbook paper, twine, burlap, fabric from anything, scrapbooking supplies, sewing supplies, jewelry making supplies, whatever you have laying around.
