DIY Copper Striped Candle Holders

Copper is hot in home decor these days. I think it’s a perfect metallic for the fall’s cozy warm days and it looks great at home with many interior colors and accessories. I made these simple copper striped candle holders that work great on the patio, mantel or side table with just dollar store vases, painters tape and spray paint.

Copper Striped Candle Holders

Here is the how to. First, on your next trip to the dollar store, pick up some glass vases. They always have a great selection there and at only a buck a piece, it’s easy to get supplies for your newest decorating project. I actually had these on hand, so this was a free project! I’ve added it to my list of things I’ve made from my craft stash.

See the dollar store hurricanes I made here.  You’ll also need painters tape and spray paint. That’s all!

The best part about this project, besides that it costs so little, is that you can make any pattern on the glass that you want. Since they will be spray painted, create any pattern and use any color paint. I made simple stripes, but I bet some swirls or vertical lines would look nice.

Taped Vases

After that, get your spray paint going and let them dry for a bit. We’ve had a few warm days, so I’ve gotten to do some painting outside {perfect prep for the upcoming holidays} but make sure you don’t rush it, you want them to be dry. {That’s our new patio in the background.}

Then simply remove the tape, fill with a candle or even flowers and you have a nice and affordable decoration for indoors or out.

If I make more of these, and there is a high chance I will, I’d add even more color to them and paint a larger area. The options are endless. And I think they’d make a cute hostess gift. Since they are tall, the candles are sure to stay lit and can light up a walkway or steps, like I pictured here.

An easy and pretty, super quick decorating idea for your outdoor or indoor space this fall! Have you ever made vases or candle holders from the dollar store? Maybe some of these will find their way to your home this season too.
