Bobble Candle Holder

This project serves 2 purposes in 1, giving us a little green in our world to help celebrate St. Patrick's Day and I'm using materials from the Dollar Tree to participate in Linday's upcoming >$5 Challenge.

Materials:
 

  • Bag of Bobbles ($ 1 at Dollar Tree)
  • Votive Candle Holder (2 for $1 at Dollar Tree)
  • Medium Candle Holder ($1)
  • Tea Light (already had it...)
Total cost, $3.50

This is so super easy...

Remove the Tea light from the little holder, and drop it in the bottom of the medium candle holder:
 

Place the votive holder on top of the tea light holder (This helped elevate the votive up a bit.) And then start filling the medium holder with the bobbles. I separated out and only used the green ones, giving us our bit of St. Patrick's Day flair.
 

That is it... just keep filling until you've reached the top.

 

What I really love about this, is the shadows it casts and the way you see the light through the bobbles. (Forgive the photo, it is hard to take a photo of a shadow, can't use a flash or there is no shadow...)


 
 

I think it would be cute to use the clear bobbles, I'm sure they'd look adorable as well.
