Designs For the Home


DIY ROPE CANDLEHOLDEROver the last 2 years the husband and I have moved 3 times (no fun). With each move the new house always needs little odds and ends. You know just those little accessories to finish a room. Well moving is expensive and the odds and ends add up….so being my crafty self I’ve come up with ways to get the look I want with out spending the big bucks or any bucks at all for that matter. So the diy rope candle holder was born.

I needed a simple candle holder for my bathroom so I made these quick rope candle holders.

First I traced the bottom of my candle on to some card board (we have loads of this from all the moving boxes).


Next I cut out the circle and glued down one end of the rope.



I placed my candle on top and wrapped the rope around the candle gluing it in spots as I went.

So here is the finished product in my super retro mint green and gold bathroom.

Rope candle holderI put it on a boring black metal candle hole that I already had laying around.  Super quick and free project. Everything I used for this project was leftover from other projects.

Oh and I will share more on this bathroom and all it’s retro awesomeness!
