DIY Bathroom Decor — Candle Holder

Today we'll make a cute candle holder for a cozy evening. This rainbow colored item will add a splash of bright colors to your bathroom!
Check out the video above to learn how to make your own!
We’ll need gouache, water and fine salt.
Pour water into a small cup and add paint.
Pour the colored water into the salt and mix well.
Replace the salt onto thick paper to dry.
Repeat for the other paints. The more colors, the better.
So we’ve got blue, light green, pink, purple, yellow.
Sift the dry salt, each color separately.
Take a small bubble bowl glass vase.
Pour the salt in layers. Use a spoon.
Combine contrasting colors. Add a candle.
Perfect! The vivid rainbow colored candle holder will help create a cozy atmosphere in your bathroom.
