Christmas is right around the corner and this year I refocused my attention to try to draw more of my Christmas decor together into a more cohesive look. Since we have a light green wall in our living room, I decided to go with red, white, and natural light tan Christmas items and decor. I needed some sort of light or candle on my credenza, so I set to creating this easy wooden snowflake DIY candle holder to give some decoration to the candle and tie everything in together.
Snowflake DIY Candle Holder Supplies:
- Darice Wooden Snowflakes (2 packs).
- White and Red Paint or Spray Paint.
- Glitter Spray Paint.
- Hot Glue Gun.
- Flameless LED Candle.
I started by laying out the largest snowflakes on the table and creating and circle with them.
I decided to use the layered snowflakes on top to hold it all together. So then I took the next largest size of snowflakes and placed them between the big snowflakes were the edges met. I hot glued them down, essentially holding the larger, bottom layer of snowflakes together.
From there, I then added the next largest size of snowflakes, places them at the center of the base largest snowflake.
So now I’ve used the three largest snowflakes and all that’s left in the pack is little star snowflakes. At this point I took my snowflake base outside and I spray painted it white and then went over it again with glitter spray paint. Next I painted the smallest star snowflakes red and topped them off with glitter spray paint too. Then I hot glued the smallest snowflakes randomly over the whole thing.
I have a nice, layered snowflake DIY candle holder now. I opted for a battery operated flameless white candle for the center of my holder so that I could leave it out unattended near my kids and on my credenza.
Here’s my styled credenza with the snowflake DIY candle holder…
