25 DIY Candle Holders to Add Flair to Your Home

There are few things that add as much flair to your home as candles do. They can be romantic, they can be decorative, and they can be elegant. Simply put, candles are one of the most versatile decorative items you can have in your home.

You can place candles anywhere. But if you want to take it to the next step, you need a great candle holder. Luckily for you, I have several DIY ideas you can easily make. Candle holders are not only functional, but they are great decorative pieces.

Let’s start with one of the simplest candle holders. Going along with that, we have one of the most commonly used ingredients in DIY projects: a Mason jar. You can do a million things with a candle and a Mason jar. But we start you off with this glitter jar that looks cute and adorable.

Sequins are a great decorative item. But when you pair them with candles, you get something even better. And you can change the color of the candles depending on the ambience you want to achieve. If you want romantic, go for red. If you want something more glamorous, go violet. And if you want sophistication, go royal blue.

3. Tealight Nuts Centerpiece

Yes, autumn is long gone. However, this is a decorative item you can use any time of the year, and it’s definitely one that looks awesome. The only downside is that the project can be demanding: you need to fill all the nuts with candles. It’s time consuming, but well worth it.

4. Orange and Clove Candle Holder

Another typical fall decoration. This one, however, is a bit easier to make. And the best part is the orange color is versatile and can fit in almost any interior design.

In this case, the wine bottles make your formal dinner setting look even more sophisticated and elegant. And it won’t cost you a dime.

One thing I’ve noticed in the past few years is that anything that’s good for fashion is good for interior design as well. Ombre, which started as a hairstyle, has since entered every other aspect of our lives—be it fashion, interior design, or something else. But you can’t dismiss the fact that ombre looks fantastic on some decorative items, including candle holders.

I said wine bottles are versatile, and there are a number of ways you can use them for candle holders. I gave you an idea for a single candle earlier on, and now I have a different idea. In this case, you can add several candles to the holder.

We’ll use another staple DIY item in this project. People use rope when they want to add a bit of warmth and a rustic feeling to the interior. You can do that for small projects like candle holders as well as bigger projects. For starters, however, I suggest you start with candle holders. If you like how your interior feels and looks afterwards, go for something bigger.

20. Gilded Pumpkin Candle Holder

Going back to those Thanksgiving and fall-inspired candle holders. When you think of pumpkin, you think of fall. But pumpkins can be decorative throughout the year, and, with a bit of coating, they can look even more elegant.

Again, this is a single candle holder. And again, inspired by wine, that beautiful drink we all love. The best part is that you can fill the glass with anything you like. This allows you to transform the candle as the season goes on: snow in winter, sand in summer, some leaves in autumn, and flowers in spring. Beautiful.

I would like to finish with something most of us consume on a daily basis: coffee. I know many people can’t imagine their day without a cup of coffee. But in addition to being great energy boost, coffee beans are highly decorative.
