The easiest DIY Bottle Candleholders

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Just like I hate throwing away jeans, t-shirts, cute shower curtains, or old bathing suits, I also hate throwing away bottles, jars or great food containers.

 Remember when I turned wine bottles into chalkboard vases?? Well, I have another large stash of collected bottles and a need for some candle holders for the upcoming holidays. 

This project is sooooo easy. You can't mess these up! Grab your bottles, clean them, soak them to remove any labels and, if necessary, use a little Goo Gone to get rid of any stickiness. Then, give it a good soap and water bath to get rid of the Goo Gone which can leave an oily residue.    

I used Gold Metallic spray paint, paint pens, metallic sharpie and Rub N Buff. 


   This first one is a Worcestershire bottle. You can use any type of tape. This is masking tape that I cut into different widths. Press the edges of the tape down tight.

With your finger, simply rub a tiny bit of Rub N Buff into the glass. It dries immediately. Pull your tape off and voila!.


This wine bottle was simply striped equal distance and sprayed with several light coats.


This Kahlua bottle was done in a chevron patter. I don't spend much time with math, I just eyeball it. Trust me, it looks better with some imperfections -- that's the beauty of handmade!  I also sprayed this one. 

And the last wine bottle was simply done with a gold paint pen and a silver metallic sharpie. I just drew little circles and filled them in.

What was going on when I grabbed my empty bottles from my Riddling Rack??


And proof that I don't have any candleholders... I only have 2 candles!! 


I have only just begun!!
