Last week I shared a few spaces in the model homes that I have been decorating. One of the center pieces I used in the dining room consisted of twisted sisal roping around a glass candle holder along with vase filler all inside of a fun mirrored tray. DIY candle holders are an easy and inexpensive way to add character and a little bling to an otherwise ordinary glass hurricane or jar. Here is ours.
First, to make your own, start with your glass candle holder.
Add hot glue along the bottom of the candle holder and apply twisted sisal roping.
They sell sisal roping at any craft or home improvement store.
Continue to apply the hot glue around the jar and wrap the sisal roping around the jar pulling tight. Also ensure that the roping is wrapped as close together as possible to avoid any gaps.
Once you have achieved the desired height of roping, be sure to add hot glue to the tip of the roping to prevent fraying.
This project took about 3 minutes.
Here are the HomeGoods sisal wrapped candle holders + centerpiece in the dining room.
Imagine that, a DIY candle holder in about 3 minutes. I love how the twisted sisal roping adds a bit of coastal and cottage design to the glass hurricane holder. I think ours coordinates beautifully with our DIY burlap curtains in our family room. So what do you think, can you handle this project? I think so!
