Jingle Bell Candle Holders

Add a little dazzle to a set of candlesticks by stringing bells around each candle or candleholder. They may not jingle -- but the bells' reflective sheen will give off a little extra glow.

What You Need

  • Assorted-size candleholders
  • Spray primer
  • Green spray paint
  • Floral wire
  • Jingle bells
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive

How to Make It

  1. Prime and paint the candleholders, allowing drying time between coats.
  2. Cut a length of floral wire 2 inches longer than the circumference of the candleholder.
  3. String bells on the wire and, if desired, hot-glue the back side of each bell to secure. Leave a 1-inch section of wire at each end.
  4. Bend the wire, wrap the bells around the candleholder, and twist the ends of the wire to secure.
