Diy sand candle holders

More articles

This article assumes some knowledge of candle making. If you're a complete beginner, why not try one of our candle making kits first. They all come with a free "How to make candles" booklet.

Make a fantastic unique candle holder for moulded candles or tea-lights.

Things you'll need:-

  1. Mixing bowl.
  2. Mould to make the shape of the holder, e.g. a glass or container.
  3. Sand
  4. PVA glue
  5. Candle / Tea-light

Roughly measure required sand. Empty into your mixing bowl. Keep adding glue until the sand is damp. If you're unsure if you've added enough glue, add a bit more.

Pat down the sand to remove any air gaps. Flatten the top and then press your candle/ tea-light into the sand, until you achieve your desired shape. Leave the candle / tea-light in place. Re-flatten the top and leave to dry.

After it has dried, remove from the mould / glass and decorate

Want to take this further? Decorate with sequins, stick on gems, ribbon or whatever. How about adding paint into the sand glue mix? How about adding pebbles, coins or other object to the mould before you add the glue and sand mix?

Warning! Making basic candles is not difficult, but getting perfect results takes time and practice. Never leave a lit candle unatended, below or close to other objects. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
