Rose Petal Candle Holder {for Mom}

Rose Petal Candle Holder {for Mom}

I have a few cute projects that I’ll be sharing throughout the week that make perfect little gifts for Mom next Sunday! Many are inexpensive and really simple to put together {and I would add any of them to my own homes decor}!

Today’s Project for Mom is a Rose Petal Candle Holder. For a total of $3.00 plus the handy work of your hot glue gun, you can make a simple glass candle holder feminine and lovely.

The materials needed are all from a local dollar store and include a glass pillar candle holder, a bag of faux rose petals, and a pillar candle.

Starting at the top of the glass candle holder, apply a dab of hot glue to the bottom of each petal and attach directly to the glass. You want to work your way around the entire holder layer by layer {this will make the petals overlap}.

Be sure to stagger the petals on each layer so they fill in the empty spaces.

It doesn’t get any easier than gluing petals to a glass holder.

The petals glow so lovely when the candle is lit inside. {and I have had this candle lit pretty much all day and the petals are still attached for those who are wondering}

I think I’m going to keep this one for my powder room {sorry Mom} Enjoy!

  31. Steph! I made these for my wedding!!! I had some very skeptical bridesmaids that held lit round votive holders “roses” during my hour long ceremony, and the holders didn’t get too warm! It was 10 years ago, so now I don’t remember if they were votive candles, but I think they were. Wine glasses would have worked too, and then the bridesmaids could just hold the glasses by their stems.

    Thanks for bringing back lovely memories!!!

  32. I’m soooo lovin’ this and I think these would make great hostess gifts…thanks for sharing this PRETTY idea with me:)
