Budget Friendly Centerpieces – Burlap Candle Holders
It’s the season for weddings and brides are always looking for easy budget friendly centerpieces or table décor.
These pretty candle holders (or fill them with candy!) can be created in minutes and the total cost is well below $10 for everything.
I was in my local craft supply shop when I spied some inexpensive glass candle holders. These come in a variety of sizes which would be perfect for clustering. The one I chose is about 6” tall and cost $2.99. You want to be sure to choose glass that is tempered to be able to withstand the heat of the candle.
First, I wrapped the candle jar with May Arts 1/8” Burlap cord. Secure the cord to the base of the glass with a dab of E600 glue then let it sit for a few minutes to give it time to stick. Wrap the glass tightly until you reached your desired stopping point. Apply another dab of E6000 to secure the top. If you’re cording starts to slip at the top or bottom, add a few dabs of E6000 to the top and bottom rows to secure. The glue dries clear.
At this point, I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to go nautical or romantic. I had some May Arts Shabby Flowers on my work desk so romantic won. 🙂
I grabbed my glue gun then folded and glued two rows of May Arts Burlap Natural Blend, overlapping the ribbons in the center… Fold the ends under for a neat presentation.
