DIY Glam Glitter & Pearls Candleholder - Dollar Store Makeover How To

6 Materials
1 Hour

I love using inexpensive items from the dollar store, to make home decor items! In this case, I turned the items into elegant candleholders with pearls and glitter! Find product links at blogpost link below!

I started with stemmed candleholders and fishbowl votives, from the dollar store.

I added pearl beads to the stemmed candleholder.

Use glue to put on the rim of the stemmed candleholder.

Put the fishbowl votive on the candleholder, so it sticks to the glue.

Add glue (make sure it dries clear) to the fishbowl votive.

Pour chunky red glitter on it.

Do the same with the base.

Now you have beautiful candleholders! They are perfect for the holiday or to glam up your decor!

You can find the full written directions at the link at the bottom of this post!

For another fun dollar store Christmas project, try the Snowman Votive!

Suggested materials:

  • 2 Stemmed candleholders
  • 2 Votives
  • Glue that adheres to glass

    What type of glue did you use? I have a Christmas ornament that is kind of like a snow globe and the top detached from the glass and I’ve been wondering what type of glue to use to reattach it to the glass ball since it needs to be strong because it hangs from the top! This is also so cute and looks easy and quick!! Thanks!!
