If you’re currently feeling festive and crafty, these upcycled DIY candle holders are the perfect project to spend an hour of your afternoon on this December. They’ll add a touch of holiday splendor to your windowsill or dinner table for guests to “ooh” and “ahh” over whenever they pay a visit. Plus, if you decorate them with classic wintery embellishments like we did, you can keep them on display all season long!

Here’s What You Need:

Step One

First, clean the bottles. We soaked ours in sudsy water for 20 minutes and the labels peeled right off. To remove all traces of glue residue, use a sponge or scraper tool.

Next, wrap floral tape around your wine bottle to secure the floral accent. We found ours at the craft store for around $1 a piece. (Ours already came with the pine cone, greenery, and bird, but you can make your own arrangements, too. )

Step Two

To conceal the green floral tape, wrap burlap ribbon around the wine bottle and secure with hot glue. (Our ribbon was somewhat transparent, so we used two layers.)

Step Three

Use the gold ribbon as an accent, if you desire. We used it on our second bottle to conceal the section where the burlap ends met. We also used a gilded deer head on one of the bottles, which adds a glittery touch!

Step Four

Fill the wine bottles with water to keep them weighted. Finally, insert your tapered candles and light whenever you feel inclined! You can also purchase faux tapered candles if you’re worried about wax or a flame.
