Hey wonderful friends.
Welcome to another fast and easy project.
I love a good and easy upcycled project, don’t you?
Today we are making lighted candles from repurposed stuff.
I have had three candlesticks that I bought at Goodwill just sitting around waiting for a good project.
And, I bought these little glass (don’t know what they are) lampshades? I think they came off of a candle holder of some sort.
I decided they would marry very nicely together.
It always makes me happy when I can repurpose or recycle something. It is also nice to get another project done.
Want to see what I did?
Awesome, let’s take a look.
First, you will need a candle holder. Mine is glass but you could use wood or metal. Whatever you may have in your stash or whatever your style dictates. Make it your own.
For this project, we will be using glass.
You will need Clear Gorilla Glue. Use the clear because you don’t want it to turn yellow over time, no we don’t. You can use other glues if you like, just make sure you read to see what it is used for. E6000 would work for this project also. Something that will hold all of the elements you are using, together.
Next, you want to take your lampshade (that is what I am calling it) and add glue to the bottom of it. I first set the glass shade on the glass candle holder to get an idea where it sits. Then I added glue to that area.
Just sit it on top of the candlestick, walk away and let it dry. I let mine dry overnight and then come back and added candles or tealights inside the glass.
Viola, you made little nightlights or decorative candleholders or candlelights!
Whatever you decide to call them, they are so pretty!
Just add your tealight candles and you’re set! The ones below are fake and they flicker like real candles, love them.
Look at the detail! I love that!
Now that is a fast and easy DIY project and very satisfying!
Here is another one I had made.
Let me know if you make one for yourself!
