I was at the thrift store a few days ago looking for some outdoor pots. I came across these cool-looking bamboo placements and an idea hit me. These would be a super easy DIY outdoor candle holder! So I picked them up along with a glass candle jar.

Below is a picture that shows the placemats. The way they looked caught my eye, but when I saw how flexible they were when I picked them up that’s what sold me on them. They would be so easy to fold into a cylinder shape.
If you are not lucky enough to find some at goodwill, Amazon has these really neat ones that would also work.
This was so easy I may just make some as gifts.
I wasn’t able to find a glass jar that was exactly the same shape, so I picked up one slightly smaller and figured I could just cut away the excess.
Now once I got home and started to figure out how I was going to cut the placement, I realized that the whole thing would probably come apart if I did that! It was held together by a stretchy material that would surely ruin the entire thing. I didn’t want to take my chances!
So I just chose to overlap it slightly. I figured no one (except all of you that is lol) was going to look that close when it was sitting on my front porch!
I grabbed my glue gun and started with the outer edge. Only a few lines of glue were needed to secure the placemat to the glass.
Here’s the final result, what do you think? I love how it turned out, and more importantly how easy it was! The fun thing about this project is that you can duplicate it with many different shapes and sizes of glass.
