When I can incorporate an upcycled project with my coffee, I get very excited. As a blogger, coffee courses through my veins most of the time. I am also a girl that NEEDS creamer in my coffee. During the holidays I love when brands create more festive flavors of coffee creamer!
I love the challenge of creating a fun and unique upcycled project.
Check out International Delight coffee creamer in their new delicious festive flavors. Peppermint Mocha, White Chocolate Raspberry, & Frosted Sugar Cookie and are available at Target!
I decided it would be fun to transform the container of this creamer bottle into a beautiful upcycle project. I wanted to show you how I made this Glitzy upcycled project Candle Holder!
Supplies List – What you will need for this project:
- International Design Coffee Creamer Bottle – Empty and clean with the wrapper removed.
- Cutting Mat
- Utility knife with blades
- Round Marbles – Clear
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Gold Glitter
- Mod Podge – Matte Finish
- Tea candles
- Smaller paintbrush or foam brush
- Small paper plates
- Paper towels
I removed the wrapper from the bottle after I cleaned and emptied it. I was super excited to get started with this upcycled project.
Then I took my scissors and blade to cut the upper half of the bottle off. I plugged in my hot glue gun at then time. I like to use paper plates under my glue gun to catch the excess glue that drips.
I began hot gluing my marbles. I began at the bottom. I wanted to use all the marbles I could to create a cute little candle holder.
Once I used up my marbles, I cut off the excess plastic container. Now I need to glitter up this candleholder!
I took my brush, mod podge, and glitter to decoupage the glitter to the interior of the holder. I really wanted to create an interior that popped. I thought would look nice when lit up at night!
After a couple of layers of glitter and glue, I had enough coverage and no glitter flying all over the place.
Insert a tea light candle and light it! Now I have a cute candle holder for the holidays to add some ambient lighting and a little sparkle.
You can find these products at Target, and the Cartwheel app can help you save money on your festive finds.
I hope you enjoyed this cute little upcycled project! I encourage you to try making one yourself!
