DIY Photo Gifts: Photo Candle Holders

6 Materials
30 Minutes
These Photo Candle Holders are easy DIY Photo Gifts. They are the perfect gifts for your family & friends. This DIY Photo craft is simple and easy to make.
  • Measure the height and width of your glass container.
  • In Photoshop create a new project the size based on your measurements.  Then open the photo you want to print.  Take the view to 100% and copy the entire image.  Paste the image into your project that is the correct size.  Select edit, then transform, then to scale.  Hold down the Shift and move your cursors until the image is the size you want.
  • Print on velum paper.
  • Cut to the correct size.

  • Use double sided tape to secure the picture.

Add a tea light or candle and ENJOY! 
The candles that work the best have the top at the area of the photo you want to highlight.
The possibilities for these gifts are endless. I do recommend using photos with lighter backgrounds. Our photos of the castle at night did not turn out as well since the black background did not allow the light to shine through.
