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

Step 1:

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.

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.

Step 3:

Apply sticky-back tape to one edge of the vellum, fit over votives and secure.

And that, as they say, is it.
