Use air dry clay to make candle holders! It takes 24-48 hours to fully dry and it cost less than $20 to make this whole set!
DIY Modern Rustic Candle Holders
Variety of candle holder styles
They look great for a tablescape but you can use them as any kind of decor around the house.
This is everything you need to make them.
Geometric candle holders
Make a sphere with the clay and cut it in half. Form the base, and stick a toothpick in the center to attach the half sphere to the base. See video tutorials below for more details.

Making the wrapped candle holder
Roll out the clay to desired thickness and cut a rectangle - I used a greeting card as a straightedge, since I didn't have a ruler handy.
Wrapped candle holder
Wrap the candle with the clay rectangle and cut the edge pieces as desired (see video tutorial below).
