I was at Target the other day and saw these cute candle holders from the Nate Berkus collection. I thought they were very cute but knew I could make them for a little less than the $20.00 they were marked.
First, I bought two glass containers at the dollar store and some rope from Home Depot. Be careful! It takes a lot more rope than you would think. I bought three feet for each candle.
All I needed to do was use a glue gun to attach the rope to the glass jar. Carefully, I wrapped the rope around the jar and glued as I went. I didn’t attach the buttons like the ones on Nate’s candles because I would like to find a little anchor or life preserver to use.
Mr. Spring was on the sailing team at the Naval Academy and loves anything nautical. Even though I am using it on my girlie books right now, I plan to create a summer nautical vignette for him. The candles will be a perfect part of it.
