Glass Bottle Candle Holder

2 Materials
10 Minutes

So I came up with this brilliant glass bottle candle holder idea and thought I would share how I made it with you all. This was so easy to make and you can change it up and make them however ever you want. It’s a simple diy but really effective.

This is the bottle I used. It’s a old rum bottle. You could use any bottle you wanted to though.

Firstly, I got some scatter crystals and poured these in the bottle so they were at the bottom. They were from my local dollar store. You can get them anywhere though.

Next I put some stones in to mix it up a bit. You can get these from anywhere.

I added some fake flowers and put them into the bottle.

Lastly I decided I wanted to get the effect of everything being underwater so I poured some water inside and filled the bottle.


I added a taper candle and there you have it. A beautiful glass candle holder. Taper candles fit perfectly in most glass bottles which makes them perfect for candle holders. What I like about this is that you could do so much and make loads of different ones with different coloured flowers or stones in for example.

Suggested materials:

  • Fake flowers   (Dollar store)
  • Glass bottle   (Junk saved)

    Is there something better than water that can be used? Water evaporates and leaves mineral rings.
