1. Prepare the Champagne Glasses and Ornaments
Start by disassembling the dollar store champagne glasses. Remove the bottom caps from some of the glasses.
Take your chosen Christmas ornaments and remove the top caps from them.
Give the champagne bottoms a couple of quick coats of spray paint in your favorite color.
2. Create Holes in the Ornaments
Using a stainless steel barbecue skewer, heat the tip over a candle flame.
Carefully place the heated tip at the bottom of each Christmas ornament and poke a hole through.
3. Assemble the Candle Holder
Cut a piece of bamboo skewer a little longer than the width of a couple of ornaments.
Fill the top of one of the champagne glass caps with hot glue and stick the bamboo stick into the glue puddle.
Slide the Christmas ornaments onto the bamboo stick, through the holes on both ends of the ornaments.
Cut off any extra skewer poking out of the top of the last ornament.
Add some hot glue on top of the highest ornament and place the other champagne glass cap on top.
4. Add the Finishing Touch
Enhance the visual appeal of your Christmas ornament candle holders by gluing larger faux pearls from the dollar store.
Apply hot glue and carefully secure them into the grooves between the ornaments.
