Modern Candle Holders
Modern candle holders can be so expensive so today I want to show you how you can make a knock-off for only a few dollars.
I started my project with a couple of things. The first was a cylinder vase from Dollar Tree.
Then I also grabbed an epoxy pen holder on Amazon that I loved the shape of.
To make sure the glass vase fit into the holder I used a paint marker to trace around the vase once I placed it on top of the foam.
Once the vase was marked out, I used an Exacto blade to carefully slice around the circle.
As I got deeper and deeper I used my fingers to push the foam out of the way. Be very careful not to cut your fingers when you are doing this part. I didn’t go all the way to the bottom but deep enough so that my vase would be held securely in place.
Now that I had hollowed out the center of my foam circle, I covered it all in Mod Podge. The Mod Podge provided a nice protective barrier so that the paint in the next step didn’t completely soak into the foam.
Once the Mod Podge was dry, I painted it with a light bluish color to cover the entire foam piece. I found it easiest to use a foam brush so that I could get it into all of the slits.
After the paint was completely dry, I popped my vase into the center of the foam holder.
Here is my new modern candle holder with a candle in it.
I love how easy it was to transform these foam pieces into chic and modern decor. I'm really happy with the end result.
