Who doesn’t love a good candle holder? Especially a DIY Holder?

Candle Holders are one of my favorite and easy DIY crafts to do.  Every fall and through the winter you will find me playing with all different types of candle holders. I just love the soft glow, and cozy feeling they bring to a home. So I had to share this seasonal version for winter. Enter the DIY Dollar Tree Snow-Covered Candle Holder Craft!

If I can make these, anyone can.  Really, they’re super easy.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Candle Holders (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Candle stick holders (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • E 6000 Glue
  • Epsom Salt (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Fake Snow (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Ribbon (which I had leftover from last year)
  • Electrical tape (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Mod Podge glue
  • Mod Podge acrylic spray – to seal the snow on the mason jars
  • Candle (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Sponge brush – to spread the glue (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Large bowl to put the epsom salt and snow into

Directions to make the DIY Dollar Tree Snowy Candle Holder:

  • On your candle sticks line the rim of the holder with E6000 glue and attach to the candle holder; hold for about 30 seconds and then let dry overnight.

  • Use the large bowl and fill it with the Epsom salt and snow; stir to mix.

  • Measure the distance you want to snow to stop on the candle holder. I went about 4 inches down from the top.  Repeat this step about 4 or 5 times around the holder and mark; Use your electrical tape to contact the points giving you a level and straight edge where the snow will stop.

  • Use the sponge brush and paint the mod podge glue around the holder.  Be sure it looks even.

  • Place the holder in the bowl and sprinkle the salt mixture all over the wet glue.

  • Spray acrylic spray around snowy jar.

  • Now decorate with the twine, picks, add ribbon, etc – get creative!

  • Use a candle and watch your snowy holder glow!

The acrylic spray is optional, but expect some of the “snow” to fall off.

This is one of the easiest winter crafts I’ve ever done and I love how it looks on my coffee table tray.  It’s a craft you can keep out all winter, and not just during the holidays.

I’d love to hear from anyone that’s made this craft before!  How much do you LOVE your holders!!?
