I imagine these would look good beside your tub. Light some scented candles and indulge in a relaxing bubble bath to ease the stress away. Or perhaps, line your pathway with these, put in some tea light candles, and light ‘em up during an outdoor dinner party. They’d look like glowing orbs. So whether it’s indoors or outdoors, these candle holders are a sure hit.

A balloon is used as a mould to achieve that half-circular shape. And because it’s free-wheeling, no two candle holders usually come out the same. The variety adds an element of surprise to this fun project.

Materials:

  • Concrete
  • Balloons
  • Recycled/disposable cups
  • Tape
  • Gloves
