Quick Candle Holder Gift Under $5.00

Glass Candle Holder Gift

This year is going to be a lean Christmas for us. We are looking for ways to create gifts under $5.00. I purchased all items for this project from Dollar Tree. This one is a simple glass candle holder.

The gift can be given to family, friends or co-workers. It is also a good gift to use in the white elephant game played in some offices during Christmas.

This project is quick and simple to do.

Let’s Get Started

Add the LED Candle

Add the LED votive candle to the center of the glass rocks. Snuggle it down so the rocks hug the candle. The votive size is easier to pull in and out of the candle holder to turn it on/off.

I used 1/2″ organza ribbon for the bow.

Create and add bow to the top of the glass holder. With the bow in the middle front you can’t see the candle. I placed my off to the side.

Suggestions for other items to use.

Clear candle holder with aqua colored rocks.

I used 1 bag of aqua colored rocks for all three holders. The three gifts cost $7.00 at Dollar Tree with one extra LED votive to use elsewhere.

I’ve made one using sand and seashells. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of it.

Fill the bottom with a bunch of colorful beads, faux pearls or tube of glitter.

There are so many things out there you can use. Take a look around and you might find something you like better.
