DIY: Candle Holder

I’m quite pleased I managed to find a way to use the lids of my candle jar. Although I’ve managed to use the majority of my used candle jars I haven’t found a use for all the lids yet since most of the jars are used to hold things like brushes and pencils.

I know seeing the roses might make you think “that’s a bit too complicated for me” but it really is simple! Of course you don’t have to do roses, you could do other flowers if you wanted but today I will be showing how to do roses.

What I used: 

  • Candle Jar Lid 
  • Paper Clay (any clay will do) 
  • Superglue 
  • Black Spray Paint 
  • Gold Ink 

Hope you like the tutorial :)

    Very nice, simple tutorial. Now I know how to make roses without them looking like iceburg lettuce. :P I’m going to try with some milliput and hopefully it’ll turn out as pretty as yours. :)

    So cool that you can glue and paint paper clay while it is still wet!

    fyi – this is exactly how you make marzipan roses, too. pretty for cupcakes!
