12 Days of DIY Christmas ~ Day 12 ~ Spool Candle Holder

It has been a busy two weeks for me and I hope it has been for you too! Have you made any of the DIY projects I gave you?

I hope so.

For day 12 I have this cute little spool candle holder.


~Glass Candle Holder (I used ones that the candles had been burned out)

~Paper or Fabric (I used vintage fabric)

~Vintage Large Spools (These are vintage spools)

~Gorilla Glue

~Mod Podge

~Paint & Paint Brush

~Tea Light Candle

1. Take off the paper on each end of the spool and paint whatever color you like, you only need to color the ends.

2. Take your fabric or paper and cut to fit around the middle of the spool. Use Mod Podge to secure.

3. Use Mod Podge to decorate the glass candle holder, cutting and attaching whatever paper or fabric you would like.

4. To attach the glass to the wood you need a bonding agent like Gorilla Glue. You only need a very little, too much and it will foam over the sides.

5. Let dry for two hours and add any other decoration you would like. Add a couple of tea lights and you are done!
