DIY Dollar Tree Candle Decor

Hi everyone! I am back to share with you another "DIY Dollar Tree Project Idea". I know I have been doing a lot of Dollar Tree DIY and I never mentioned why. Well my husband and I are having our FIRST and ONLY house built and it will be our FOREVER HOME for us and our girls. So all of these DIY things I have been creating is for our new home. The one project that I will be sharing with you today is a "Candle Decor" project that I plan to put on the edges of our garden tub in the bathroom. But this "DIY Dollar Tree Candle Decor" can be use in other parts of the home and still look beautiful.

This is the vase that I found at Dollar Tree that I used for this project.

I also got this candle stick at Dollar Tree to make the Candle Decor taller.

To glue the candle stick and the vase together I used the E6000 glue. This glue (like I have said before) works great on glass projects.

This is how it look once I glued the vase and candle sticks together.

I wanted to add some color to this "Candle Decor" and also give the candle some height in the vase so I use these blue glass gems that I also got at Dollar Tree.

I put a toilet paper roll in the middle of the vase when I was putting the glass gems in so that I wouldn't need so many glass gems to get the height I wanted for the candle. (Sorry the picture was so dark, it was hard for me to get a good picture without a flash glare).

I then cut four slits in the toilet paper roll down to where the glass gems end so that I could fold it and tape it down.

I then took the toilet paper roll out and taped down the slits.

I then returned it back to the vase with the glass gems around it.

These are the candles that I used for this project and I also found them at Dollar Tree. I was going to use some taller candles I saw at Wal-Mart but I didn't like the look of how tall they were so I used these which was even better because these were just a dollar each and the ones at Wal-Mart were $3 each.

This is how they look. I can't wait to see how these will look in my bathroom on the garden tub. When I move into my house I will be having blog post on how I decorated and organize my house so stay tuned for those future post.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

    1. You can get it at Walmart and craft stores like hobby lobby, Michael, or Joann's

  2. This is giving me so many ideas... I'm already thinking of a few ways you could make these even better for just a few more dollars!

  3. I am curious to find out what blog system you’re using? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions? Kyani
