Dollar store candlesticks tutorial

Well hello!  It's been a while since my last post.  Would it make it any better if I told you I am done with my Christmas shopping with the exception of the one person who hasn't given me any ideas?  

Today I'm sharing a really quick and easy Dollar Store candlestick.  I cost me three dollars for the materials for this project.  All the other items I had around the house.  

I began with my three dollar store items.  
1. candle
2. candlestick
3. glass candle holder

Glue together the two pieces of glass.  I use E6000, but a hot glue gun will work too.  I then painted some glue onto the candle and rolled it in glitter to give the plain candle, well more glitter!

I then added a strip of burlap and topped it with a strip of ribbon to the glass jar.  Last I added a Christmas pin that used to be my Mom's.  

And that folks is it!  The result is a simple yet beautiful candlestick that doesn't scream dollar store.

Where I'm partying at:



  1. Very nice indeed! You are right in that it doesn't scream dollar store. Looks expensive with your moms' pin on it!

    1. PS. I love your fonts - so unique!

    2. thanks Gail. I got the font on Picmonkey from the Holiday collection. It is so pretty, I'm hoping they keep that one forever in their choices! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. Oh How pretty! I just love it. Looks elegant. Thanks for sharing with the party. I am loving that I am getting so many more inspiring Dollar tree Christmas ideas.

  3. Nice! Love what you did to the candle. Now it is a $20 Crate and Barrel candle! Found you from Debbie Doo's Dollar Tree party.
