Love the look of chippy, distressed candle holders but hate the price tag? You gotta try these amazingly simple DIY Dollar Tree Candle Holders! I originally saw this idea from another DIY-er on Instagram, (@peonyaccents), and couldn’t wait to try it out! One trip to Dollar Tree later, and I had two easy peasy candle holders.
What You’ll Need (to make 2):
-3 glass candle holders from Dollar Tree
-2 trinket/jewelry dishes
- chalk paint (I used Craft Smart chalky acrylic paint in 'Parchment')
- antiquing wax (I used ArtMinds wax in 'Tea Stained')
- super glue
-fine grit sandpaper
Step 1: Super glue two of your glass candle holders by gluing the two smaller ‘top’ ends together
Step 2: Super glue the trinket dishes to the top of both holders — the taller one you just created and the third one you haven’t used yet.
Step 3: Make sure the glue is completely dry. I let mine sit overnight to be safe.
Step 4: Paint the entire candle holders with your chalky paint. Let dry, and repeat. I did three coats total.
Step 5: Using a cloth, I took a small amount of wax and gently applied to spots that are raised to give the candle holders an ‘antique’ look. A little bit of wax goes a long way!
Step 6: Using your fine-grit sandpaper, lightly sand along edges and random spots to give a distressed look. Voila!

Since I already had all materials other than the Dollar Tree items, this project cost me a total of $5! You can literally do this with any chalk paint color, and it’s such an easy, fun craft! Perfect to add to a shelf, bookcase, or centerpiece. If you give this a try, please let me know how yours turned out! (email email@example.com, or tag me on Instagram @threedaughtershome).
