Warm and inviting, these carol candle holders are perfect for moms and mom-equivalents this holiday season. The best part? They take minutes to make.
Here’s all you need to make the three candle holders pictured above:
- a cutting mat
- metal ruler
- exacto knife
- sticky back tape
- white or ivory vellum
- three votive holders, 2 1/2″ high and 7″ in diameter
- three tea lights (and, no, the tea lights don’t melt the velum)
- this PDF available on my Scribd page
Print out the PDF onto the vellum. If using an inkjet printer, WAIT UNTIL THE INK IS COMPLETELY DRY. If you’re using a laser printer, you’re good to go to step 2.
Using the exacto, mat and metal ruler, cut about 1/4″ above and below the text.
Cut 1/4″ off the LEFT margin and 1″ off the RIGHT margin.
Apply sticky-back tape to one edge of the vellum, fit over votives and secure.
And that, as they say, is it.
