DIY Upcycled Project Glam Candle Holder

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.

STEP 1

I removed the wrapper from the bottle after I cleaned and emptied it. I was super excited to get started with this upcycled project.

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

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.

STEP 4

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.
