Boho Candle Holder With Raffia

I recently dug into my tealight box to try to find a way to make my million tealights less utilitarian! This DIY Candle Holder idea is very quick and all you really need is a bundle of raffia.


Find the detailed step-by-step here!


I would suggest you get some natural raffia like this one because these candle holders are all about the texture of braided raffia. Choosing a natural and neutral color will help highlight the texture.

To start, separate a bunch of raffia from the bundle. If you want to make a trio of tealight candle holders at different heights, you’ll need at least 3 to 4 feet (90 to 120cm). Tie the strands together and clamp them down or hang them from a nail on the wall. Braid the raffia until you run out.

Next, take your raffia braid and wrap it around a tealight to measure how much braid you’ll need to create a ring that fits around the candle. Use your glue gun to join the 2 ends of the braid to create a ring.

Stack and glue several rings on top of each other to create taller tealight holders! Insert a tealight at the top of the candle holders and voila!

Stay safe 💚 with or without candle holders, never leave your candles burning unattended!

    Cute. To those who are having thought. A friend of mine would just makw her candle rounds wet. Just sprayed them until they are wet. Stay away from the glued area though. She would just spritz it with a small spray bottle . She also used side bottle caps for the ones that were a little lose to hold the twilight candle,
