Do-it-yourself candlestick from a jar from baby food

Today, there is electricity in every home and there is no need to constantly use candles. But they remain popular in various countries and the manufacturing industry is constantly evolving. Today, candles symbolize the holiday, help create a romantic atmosphere, aroma candles soothe, are used as decorative elements, and most importantly, they bring coziness and comfort to the house. Candlesticks can now be seen in a wide variety of materials, sizes and colors. Sometimes such creations cost a lot of money, and if you want to make something fabulous and unusual on your own, then today we will tell you how to make a candlestick from a jar with your own hands. nine0003

Consider several options

If you have several glass jars in stock, then you will definitely choose several options for yourself. Jars of baby food or spices look very good, you can make a whole series of candlesticks of the same size. You can use a candle holder or pour wax inside and add various ingredients for fragrance and decoration.

Here, for example, is a chandelier made from such small jars. For manufacturing, the most common materials are required, you can see an example of manufacturing in the photo. nine0003

Or these lanterns, they will be a good decoration for the restaurant.

For the stability of the candle inside the candlestick, you need to add sand, grains to the bottom, with the addition of small gravel and salt it will also look good.

These lamps will fit well into the interior of the gazebo.

Winter version of the candlestick. Salt was poured tightly at the bottom, the top was decorated with twine, and you're done.

Just color illustrations can be added.

Small glass cups instead of jars are also a good option.

And to make such a magic candle with your own hands, you will need:

  • wax;
  • wax heating container;
  • wooden stick;
  • aroma oils;
  • dye;
  • wick;
  • jar.

Cut the wax into small pieces and set to warm up in a water bath.

Stir the wax well until all the pieces are completely dissolved and add various aroma oils and dyes. You can add spices, such as cinnamon or star anise.

Various decorative elements can be added to the sides of the jar.

The wax hardens very quickly, so pour it into the mold immediately.

We fix the wick with a stick and hold it carefully. All details can also be fixed with wax. When the wax has completely cooled, you can remove the top mount and cut off the excess thread. nine0003

To make multi-colored layers, you need to wait until each filled layer hardens, only then pour the next one.

Small jars do not need much decoration, their shape gives an unusual look anyway.

It all depends on your mood, you can come up with different decorations on different topics.

Here, for example, the beauty of the sea with the help of an ordinary semolina.

Jars decorated with glitter. nine0003

If the jar is wrapped with rope or threads, and then covered with paint of one tone or several, then such a structural candlestick will turn out.

Fantasy will always tell you the best. The main thing is to have the desire and mood, then you get such wonderful works.

Decorative pebbles are sold in every craft store. They can also be used to create mesmerizing beauty.

You can't take your eyes off this beauty.

Cans can also be used, they can also be beautifully decorated. Video on the topic of the article

The second life of a baby food jar :), crafts from baby food jars candlesticks from baby food jars


16 August 2012 16:24

After my youngest son was 5 months old and we started introducing complementary foods, I had a lot of empty baby food jars. I distributed them, and when I supplied everyone I could, these jars began to force me out of my own kitchen.

And so, I found a solution for them

So, we are making a festive candlestick!

For this we need:

* Baby food jars,

* Paints and contours for glass and not only (acrylic, melallic, glitter, universal . .. in general, everything that is available for all surfaces)

* Thinner for stained glass paints is not water-based (if they require it) I do not dilute the paint with it but my brushes.

* Varnish glossy universal or for decoupage. nine0160

* Brushes.

* Wide brush or blush brush to shake off glitter.

* Loose sequins - different colors and calibers.

* Alcohol or nail polish remover.

* Cotton pads.

* Absolutely any ribbons: satin, nylon, thin, wide, with or without a pattern, braid and plaits, etc. ...

* Beads, glass beads, beads, sequins, etc. nine0160

* Glue gun.

* Scissors.

* Tea light.

* Well, what is there and how you really want to decorate the candlestick.

So let's get started.

I propose to make several options for candlesticks:

We make a candlestick Pink glamourr.

Degrease the jar by wiping it with alcohol or nail polish remover. nine0160

Next, with stained glass paint and the selected color, I have it orange, holding the jar upside down, apply paint around the circumference of the jar and rotate it, forming smudges.

Pour orange sparkles on the still wet paint.

nine0160 Next, with white paint, do the same thing only from the side of the neck. Controlling and forming smudges. Then we sprinkle pink sequins of a larger size than red ones on the wet paint.

After everything is dry and we have removed the non-adhering sequins from the jar, we proceed to decorate the neck. We will decorate it with a pink-lilac ribbon and threads of different colors.

Having wrapped the necks of with school tape, we fixed it with a glue gun (do not overdo it with glue, it can leak when heated from a candle!) fix it pointwise and wrap it tightly. Glue the threads on top of the tape, after tying the knots at the same distance.

Next, we make a bow from the same ribbon and the same threads and glue it. The hanging ends of the threads seemed long to me, but I did not cut them, but wrapped them around the jar and fixed them with a small ribbon bow. nine0160 Then we insert a tea candle into the resulting candlestick, and voila!!! Enjoy! Glamor - mur - mur - mur - it turned out murky!

****************************************** ******

Making a Beaded Fairy candlestick:

Degrease the jar by wiping it with alcohol or nail polish remover.

Then draw a contour on the glass, I have it golden, a vertical line from the bottom to the neck. We draw a fatter line, we will glue multi-colored beads on it.

Draw the next line...

Draw lines at equal distance dividing the jar into segments. We cover all lines with beads. Bottom around the circumference of the jar, too. Next, after our contour with beads, yellow and green paint on the glass has dried, we paint over the resulting windows one by one. nine0160 Sprinkle with pale green sparkles on top.

As in the first version of the candlestick, we fix the ribbons and threads around the circumference very carefully without excess glue. We decorate with large and smaller bows so that our candlestick is beautiful from all sides. nine0160

Insert a candle into the candlestick, light it up and enjoy! This is what we ended up with:

*********************************** *********

Making a candlestick Mosaic lantern:

Degrease the jar by wiping it with alcohol or nail polish remover.

With a bronze contour on the glass, draw chaotic straight lines. As a result, we get a mosaic pattern. Don't grind! After the contour has dried with white, yellow and orange paints on the glass, paint the resulting cells, leaving some of them unpainted. Sprinkle red sequins over wet paint, not very thick.


We wrap the neck with a wide pale yellow ribbon, hiding the thread. With a thinner white ribbon, we wrap it in spiral steps. We finish the decor with orange thread and a ribbon bow.

Insert a candle, light it and admire the play of light in the mosaic pattern!


We make paired candlesticks M F:

Degrease the jars by wiping them with alcohol or nail polish remover.

With universal contours with sequins (red and blue), draw a triangle and a circle on one jar with a red contour - the sign Zh on the other, with a blue contouron a triangle, but already inverted and a circle - the sign M. Add points. After drying, fill M and G with white paint and sprinkle each with sequins of the corresponding color. nine0160

After the paint has dried and we have removed the non-adhering sequins, we cover the entire jar with glossy varnish and on top of the dry varnish on the segment from the dots alternately sprinkle with opposite colors of sequins.

After everything is dry and we shake off the sequins, we begin to decorate the neck. We use silver ribbon and blue and burgundy threads for M. For F pink, white ribbons and blue and burgundy threads.

We insert candles into our candlesticks, light them and relax and enjoy each other in an embrace with our soulmate!


This is what we ended up with:

We arrange a modest photo session for our candlesticks and voila:

What good fellows we are!!!

Try it and you will succeed!
