My inspiration for this came from Lincoln Christmas Market where there was a stall selling old wine/spirit bottles decorated with paper like this with fairy lights inside. They were super cute, but the cheapest was £25, which I thought was rather steep! So I thought I could probably do one myself and decided to do a candle holder rather than a bottle because as cute as they were I'm not sure I really want an old wine bottle as an ornament!
What you will need:
- A plain tea light holder/glass.
- Paper - I'm not 100% sure what this paper is called, it's like thick tissue paper with a slight pattern to it, but you can pick it up in most craft shops.
- PVA glue or similar. My glue came with a brush but if yours doesn't you will need a brush also.
1 - Cut two squares of paper that are a bit bigger than what you would need for half of your candle holder.
2 - Coat your candle holder with the glue using a brush.
3 - Stick one sheet of paper onto the candle holder diagonally. Stick the other sheet on the opposite side.
4 - Stick down all loose edges either underneath or tucked inside the candle holder. Make sure they are properly secured inside - you don't want your paper burning the first time you use it! If you can do it neatly then cut at the top instead.
5 - Wait for it to dry and then voila!
