9. DIY Cut-paper Candle Holders
Grab some simple glass containers and turn them into something cool! If you have an X-acto knife, you can cut a billion different-sized U shapes into the paper and bent the little flaps over so they stuck out. Of course, it’s not a problem if you don’t have this special knife, you can use ordinary scissors as well. It’s such an interesting texture when the double-stick tape secured the wraps. (If you don’t want to use a glass container, then do not light ordinary candles, use electronic ones, so nothing will burn!)
10. DIY Copper Candlestick Holder
If you don’t have enough time to source DIY ideas or you just don’t want to buy expensive materials but feel inspired to create something cool craft, the following copper candleholder is perfect for you. It will bring a modern look to your home. You will need some thin copper coil, (you can find this ingredient at a hardware store in the copper pipe section) and a candle.
First of all, bend the copper coil around something circular (you can even use a big roll of tape), keep bending until you make a little perch on top for the candle. Pinched the pipe closed with a pair of pliers to get a sharper edge and after that, cut a matching slit at the bottom of the candle while using dull scissor tips. Finally, wedge the candle over the sharp edge and you are ready! Be creative, play with sizes and shapes! Fortunately, the copper is soft enough to create bigger shapes.
11. Gold Dipped Log Candle Holders
Something old and natural combined with something shiny and new.
There is no doubt that gold is one of the colors of Christmas. It is such a warm color, isn’t it? So you shouldn’t miss golden crafts at Christmas time! When the weather is nice, have a walk with your friends, family, sweetheart or one you like in a forest or park and collect some thick wood pieces. Drill the middle of them carefully, create small channels. Of course, you shouldn’t ignore the size of the candle as well. Your next step is to cover these little wooden candle holders with some golden paper or paint them with golden acrylic paint. It’s just a simple way to have some unique DIY candle holders. What’s more, you will never get bored of this rustic and modern style.

13. DIY Copper Striped Candle Holders
Here is another copper-based idea, and what a genius but simple idea! Grab a copper tape (thinner size allows for creating more intricate designs) and just simply wrap horizontal rings of copper tape around your glass candle holders. To tell the truth, it’s not easy to keep the tape straight and make sure the ends matched perfectly but be concentrated and you can do it! What’s more, I have a useful tip for you as well. If you wear gloves, you won’t make fingerprints on the tape. Your craft will look just like a brand-new IKEA product if you start the copper stripes off closer together at the base and then spread them further apart towards the top.
14. DIY Handmade Shell Candles
Sea and ocean lovers, attention, please! Here is a wonderful and easy shell candle project you should try out at home.
Firstly, collect deep shells that sit upright. It’s good to know that the deeper they are the longer burning time you’ll have. Then use pre-waxed wicks and glue them into the center of the shells. After that, gently melt the wax over a low heat when the wicks are secure. Don’t forget to leave the wax to cool fully before you move them. Voila, your DIY handmade shell candles are ready! They are perfect for accessorizing a bathroom or dressing up a table arrangement.
