Glittered Candleholders

With their motion frozen in clear glass glitter, coniferous trees and reindeer encircle hurricane lamps lighted from within by tall, rose-hued candles. Here, the candleholders are elevated on glass cake stands, then faux snow is dusted around them.




  • Glitter Candle Template
  • Glass hurricane lamp
  • Transparent tape
  • Glue
  • Bottle with fine-tip applicator
  • Bowl
  • Clear glass glitter
  • Cake stand
  • Candle


  1. Step 1

    Copy design to glass: photocopy template, enlarging to fit into a glass hurricane lamp. Roll up the template and slide it inside the glass, with the design facing outward. Secure at the top with transparent tape. Using glue in bottle with a fine-tip applicator, outline one section of the design, then fill it in.

  2. Step 2

    Apply glitter: Working over a bowl, sprinkle with clear glass glitter. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. Glue and glitter the next section of the design. Continue all the way around. Remove template; let dry overnight. Place hurricane lamp on a cake stand, and place candle inside.

    This was a fantastic & "EASY!" DIY idea for the Holidays...(even as a neat & meaningful *Hostess-Gift*)
    -OR- a "Wonderful" gift for that ("Special-Someone") on your list... that is either...
    ((("HARD-TO-PLEASE" and/or already "HAS-EVERYTHING")))
    JUST F.Y.I.!
