DIY Wedding Candle Holders - Create gorgeous wedding candles using baby food jars and sparkles!

I am a big fan of DIY! It adds such a personal touch to your wedding and it is something that no one else will have. For an upcoming wedding I am planning we decided to do something a little different to create the candles. The bride has a little one at home so there is an abundance of baby food jars (although any jars would be perfect) so I decided to start creating our own DIY Candle Holders to go on each table.

Here is todays DIY Tutorial to make your own DIY Candle Holders:

Glue, I used mod podge because it drys clear
Sparkles in your colours
Jar – I used baby food jars
Tap

I left a little extra that I folded over so I could easily pull the tape off.

It would be neat to do this at all different heights for each jar but with baby food jars there is a glue line that I was covering up so each jar went almost to the top. I also thought it would be really neat to put a piece of tape in the middle to make it striped.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure to put something underneath so you can dump the sparkles back into the container. I used wax paper. Make a crease in the paper so all the sparkles will fall right into that crease and then easily fall into your container when finished. Make sure to shake & tap off any extra sparkles.

Peel off the tape & put them upside down so that the bottom will dry and wouldn’t dry to your table. See the nice clean line from where the tape was removed?

THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!
