Swirled Candle Holders

This lovely candle holder is made with fabric paint! It glows beautifully and casts pretty patterns on the walls it is near.
Start by using masking tape to tape off the top and bottom, then sponge paint the middle with glitter (or otherwise) fabric paint. Then either freehand, or with a template inside the candle holder, doodle a pattern with a like-color metallic paint over the top of the sponge painting, carefully remove the masking tape and let dry. Add a tea-light or votive and let it cheer up your space!
We did this for Valentine's Day, but it would also be lovely at Fall - with gold, or Christmas... feel free to play with colors!

  1. This is my favorite. I'm a first time craft steering team member for my local MoPs and I'm curious, did you have any trouble using fabric paint in crafts? In the past people have had a hard time getting their crafts home in our group when we use this item because it ends up smearing when they move it.
