DIY Candy Cane Candle is easy and fun!

Hey everyone let’s make some DIY Candy Cane Candle’s for our table today!  Hope your day is wonderful and warm this Thursday.  Hello I Live Here has made one final project for Christmas, our DIY Candy Cane Candle.  I had one red candle holder so I decided to dress it up for my final Christmas 2013 project this year.  It was a simple DIY candy cane candle project you can pretty much make with everything you have left from your Christmas decorating sprees.  It makes all those Micheal’s and Joann’s craft trips worth that one free project with the left overs and came up with this great new DIY Candy Cane Candle to match my other projects.

I used all the left over things from my other projects, glitter, fake snow, old red candle holder, red/white stripped candy canes and my burlap and red/white stripped string from Target.  Let’s get started on this quick little DIY Candy Cane Candle project!  Make sure you collect all the items you will use for your project.

First, I cleaned the candle holder, and dried it.  Then I took my hot glue gun and added my four unwrapped candy canes to the side as shown below.

Next, I added a coat of Minwax quick dry Polyurethane purchased from The Home Depot to seal the candy canes.

After that, I added flocked snow letting it dry, and following that with a quick spray of silver glitter.

Then, I added my ribbons tied into a beautiful bow of burlap twin and red/white string.

The finished DIY Candy Cane Candle Holder matches my red and white Easy Candy Cane Vase and Joy stocking hanger from our previous projects.

This was a fast and simple project taking all of about 15 minutes to create.  I just couldn’t waste my left over items, so this DIY Candy Cane Candle cost me nothing to make but my time bringing loads of fun!

I want to thank all of you for reading all our posts we shared this Christmas season, including the Christmas Ornament featured on Bob Vila nation and art projects featured on Hometalk. I hope our Christmas creations have inspired you this Christmas season to up cycle left over and older items.  From the Hello I Live Here family to yours, may you all have the best Christmas this year!  See you for new Christmas decor ideas in December 2014! 😉
