Custom-Tailored Lights

These charming candleholders illuminate any space with lovely pinpoints of light. And because they are "stitched" on a sewing machine, you can make multiples in a single sitting.

  • Card stock

  • Needle and thread

  • Pencil

  • Scissors

  • Glass cylinders

  • Double-sided tape


  1. Begin by stitching patterns onto sheets of card stock. Lightly trace a design or use one of our templates onto the paper with a pencil. Stitch over the pencil marks. As the needle punctures the card stock (with or without thread) it creates tiny holes through which the candlelight will flicker.

  2. Cut to size, and wrap around glass cylinders; secure with double-sided tape.
