Fall Candle Holder DIY

You’ll never believe how much this gorgeous fall candle holder cost to make. And it still looks like high-end decor!

Even though summer is still here and the humidity is rising and falling each day, nighttime is bringing a little chill to the air. I am not a summer person because of the heat and humidity, or a winter person, especially when the temperatures fall below 40.

However, I am fall person. I love when the temperatures start to drop and the trees start showing off their beautiful colors. A nice change every now and then is a good thing for me because I get bored when things stay the same constantly. So when the weather and the leaves start changing I get excited.

And this gets me motivated to actually get things done.

My favorite time of the year to make new home decor is fall. I love the reds, oranges, and yellows of everything! Today I’m going to show you how I made this cute little fall candle holder.

One of the best things about this fall candle holder is that you can change the candle out for the seasons. Since the candles are only a dollar, just buy a few so you have extras on hand. This candle holder would also be pretty decorated for Christmas by changing the ribbon and adding some tiny ornaments.

What you need:

What you do:

Step 1

Spray paint the candle holder and plate. There are three candleholders in the photo because I was using them for a different project, but you only need one for this.

Step 2

After the plate and candle holder are dry, gather everything you’re going to need together.

Step 3:

Add a dab of hot glue to the top of the candleholder and stick one end of the jute string to it. Continue wrapping the jute around the top of the candle holder and glue in place when done.

Step 4

Using the E6000 adhesive, glue the plate to the top of the candleholder.

To make this easier, I turned the plate upside down and glued the candle holder to it. This way I could make sure the candleholder was centered correctly.

Step 5

Wrap the ribbon around the LED candle and cut it to the size you need. Hot glue the ends together to the back of the candle.

Step 6

Put the candle and some embellishments on the candle holder. I just used a flower and a tiny pumpkin. Both were from Dollar Tree and something I already had on hand.

Super easy and super cheap!! I love how this fall candle holder turned out! Which is why I love Dollar Tree!

This candle holder ended up only costing me $5 to make! You can’t beat that!

  5. I absolutely adore the way this turned out Michelle! 🧑 I agree with you, Fall has to be the most brilliant time of year (for so many reasons, as you said). This candle and holder perfectly capture the warmth of the season.

      1. Oh that’s great! Will your new places be online?

        1. Yes. I try to do a few craft shows but most of them are too far away for me. πŸ™‚

    2. Wow. I always love your creation. Beautiful piece ma’am. πŸ‘

      1. Thank you so much!!

        1. You are welcome ma’am.

  13. Wow Mich, I can just imagine that magic for Christmas time. You are so creative, wish you were nearer, we’d swop crochet patterns, that’s my skill.
    You though are a marvel!

    1. Thank you! I think it would be beautiful for Christmas, too. πŸ™‚ I would love to swap crochet patterns and sit and crochet with you! I love to crochet, too. πŸ˜€

  14. I love the fall too! I can’t wait for all the trees to start changing! But I just miss how short the days start to become. Awesome DIY!

    1. Me, too. They are already getting shorter and I don’t like it. I never get used to that. I’m so excited for all the colors!! I just wish it would last longer. πŸ˜ƒ

      1. Me too. It seems like we have beautiful leaves for one month but then bleak, bare trees for 3-4 months!

  15. So cute! I love the falls colors too πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you so much! The colors of fall are beautiful. πŸ˜ƒ

  16. You have me thinking fall with this beautiful dΓ©cor! This is so simple! I love it!! Autumn is my favorite season too…especially for the weather!

    1. Thank you!! I love the fall weather, too. I’m getting tired of the extreme heat we’ve been having. πŸ™‚

  17. Aah, I’m a fall person myself, so I totally agree with you.. Can’t wait for cooler nights and crisp fresh air! Btw, love this diy fall candle holder! 🍁😊

    1. Thank you so much! I am so ready for. The cooler temps. I’m over this summer humidity. πŸ˜ƒ

  18. That candle looks so beautiful! What a great idea! πŸ’™

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

  19. Another great idea. Thanks so much. It is beautiful.

    1. Thank you!! Sorry for the late reply – your comment didn’t come through right away. πŸ™‚

  20. Michelle, this is gorgeous! You are very talented. I can see you getting excited for Christmas! Have you considered selling your crafts at home parties? If you can’t do them for whatever reasons, perhaps you could wholesale to others who could. I had a candle gift shop and made my own candles and that is a full-time/overtime job. I too, love Dollar Tree and shop there every week. I’m actually buying bent cans, branded foods and saving 60% of the original price. I’m cheap. Hahaha!

    1. Thank you so much!! I’ve never thought about that before. It would be a lot better than going through sites like Etsy where they take half your profits in fees. That’s a great idea! Thank you for telling me about that. πŸ˜€

  21. You’re are so creative Michelle. I am also done with the summer. I started putting out Fall decor. I just couldn’t wait any longer. I love pumpkins, leaves, the change in the weather (up north that is) and just looking forward to the holidays. Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons we have. I will have to make one of these candle centerpieces now., very pretty.

    1. Thank you so much! I hope you get to make one of these. πŸ˜€ I love the colors of fall, too, I just wish it lasted longer. It seems like here we have long winters and summers and not enough Spring and Fall.

  22. I love this! ❀️

    1. Thank you so much!

      1. You’re welcome!

  23. This candle looks beautiful! It looks like something you would buy from a shop! I’m loving the gold leaf design, it is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the tutorial Michelle, this looks like a really fun project and has turned out fantastic! <3 xx

    1. Thank you so much! It was so easy to make, too. And inexpensive! πŸ˜€

  24. It is a rare day to see temps below 40 here in south Florida,
    not to say it doesn’t happen.
    You are very talented!

    1. Thank you so much! I like the in-between temps – not too hot and not too cold. πŸ™‚

      1. Would love to even see some of those right now. Still getting heat advisories here.

  25. Very pretty! I love the Dollar Tree for crafts. Great idea Michelle!

    1. Thank you so much!! πŸ˜€

I love to hear from you!
