Soda Bottle Candles Holders

These candle holders are made from plastic soda bottles. Typical taper candles fit snugly into the tops. You can paint them any color and decorate them for any occasion or holiday. I've got a variety of styles I made on my site. Below is the basics.
IMPORTANT: These are meant as decor items only. DO NOT light candles in these plastic holders.

Soda bottles with normal size openings. (These fit most taper candles.)

X-acto type knife.

Spray Paint

Extras (anything you care to glue on)
Cut the tops off your bottles. Measure to make sure they are even.
Spray paint.
I glued ribbon around the threads on all of mine.
Add any extras you like! FYI some have been concerned about the stability. Mine have been very stable. Not tipping problems at all!
You can view the steps to making all of these on my site plus lots more photos!
