Today I am sharing my DIY candle holder with jute roping. 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 jute roping around a glass candle holder along with vase filler all inside of a fun mirrored tray. Google and Pinterest have some of the coolest coastal DIY candle holders and if you make your own, you can save a lot of money!

How to make a coastal candle holder

Apply the hot glue around the jar and wrap the jute roping around the jar pulling tight. Also ensure that the jute 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.

Here are the HomeGoods jute wrapped candle holders I purchased last year (that inspired this candle project) + centerpiece in the dining room.

Imagine that, a Coastal DIY candle holder with Jute Roping in about 3 minutes. I love how the twisted 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!

    I believe that you did make the large candle holder, but the ones in your dining room are from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It is very upsetting that a craft blogger would place store bought materials in a blog and make it out like they were crafted. Shame on you.

    1. If you read the posts thoroughly, you would have seen that it was noted where they were purchased. So sorry you feel that way, however, your comment is unwarranted. Thanks so much for the feedback and have a great evening! 🙂

  5. Love this Jessica, easy and gorgeous. Thanks for the idea! Wendy
