DIY Winter Wedding Candleholder

Kelli Hunt created this candle tutorial for us last year, but I couldn’t resist featuring them again since we’re so close to Christmas. The tutorial is based on porcelain candleholders from this winter wedding board. Enjoy!

Winter Wedding Candleholder Instructions

Step 1: Roll clay out to about an 1/8″ thick with the rolling pin.

Step 2: Cut clay with pizza cutter into 3/4″ strips, and cut ends to a diagonal.

Step 3: Wrap strips around wine cork, then take the clay off the cork.

Step 4: Place candles in holder to test the correct width. Take out the candles and let the clay air dry overnight (about 10-12 hours).

Step 5: Paint clay to desired color (white for this inspiration board).

Step 6: Place candles in holders and you’re finished!
