Sounds very romantic huh? Cement candle holders….hmmm.
It’s no secret that I have been making some of these this year…
The concrete garden balls, not the cat! So, every time I make the garden globes I end up with a bit of leftover cement. I hate to just throw toss it, so I found if I fill up disposable containers (usually my recycled yogurt and mandarin orange containers) with the leftover cement and push a smaller container down inside them I have a candle holder that is sturdy!
The round one I made from a cottage cheese container and the smaller one was a discarded storage container.
I made some today and just used a tea light tin to push down into the cement to make the spot where the candle sits.
What do you think? Cute huh?
I am thinking that I will put some felt on the bottom of these and bring them inside!
I use citronella candles on the deck in the summer to keep the bugs away, so this is a perfect arrangement!
The dual candle holder in front I painted with some leftover chalk paint and wiped some of it off. LOVE the way it turned out!
I will be linking to these great parties!
