These glitter diy votive candle holders are super easy and quick to make, and they are kind on the budget too!

Try them in any colour that suits your theme such as gold, black or pearlescent white.


What you need:

– Old paper or newsprint to work on.

– Clean glass jars or small tumblers.

– White glue (PVA). I grabbed this at the $2 shop. You need a glue that will dry hard and clear.

– Paint brush.

– Glitter.

– Tea light candles.


Working on a piece of paper, brush the bottom half of the jars with a thin layer of glue. Sprinkle with glitter. Shake off any excess.

Leave upside-down to dry completely.

Dust off any excess glitter stuck to the jars. Fill with candles.
