Winter can be so depressing.

DIY Candle Holder

I like to light candles in every single room when I’m home to make things cozier.  Candles make me feel better about holiday season being over and the fact that it’s freezing outside.  Here’s how to turn out little glam tea light holders.

Gold Tea Light HolderYou’ll need Mod Podge, gold glitter, and painters tape.

Tea Light Candle HolderYou also need tea light holders, I found these at Michael’s for $1 each.  If you don’t want to use tea light holders, you can use a vase, glasses, or pretty much anything that you want to display.

Fun Tea Light HolderUse painters tape to section off the portion of the glass that you want to add glitter to.

Stylish Tea LightsPaint a thin layer of Mod Podge over the sectioned off glass and cover it generously with glitter.  This is extremely messy so make sure you put down newspaper or tissue paper.  Carefully pull the tape off immediately after adding the glitter and let the glasses dry.

Glitter Candle Holder

When the first layer has dried, add a second layer of Mod Podge over the glitter.  This will hold the glitter in place so you don’t find it everywhere.  When everything dries you can add your tea lights.

Rustic Candle Holder

I like to give these a rustic glam feel by adding coffee beans to the holders first and then placing the tea lights in.  The beans hold the candle in place and make your house smell amazing.
