. . . T-Shirt Wrapped Candle Holders . . .

I am always looking for a very quick and simple craft project that can dress something up that I have laying around the house.  I don't know if you remember the T-Shirt Rope Scarf I posted about but I made a ton of them and have quite a variety of colors.  I went to put one on and thought about all the Pins I have seen with glass jars covered in sweaters and I thought why not use some of these "rope" scarves and wrap a jar for a candle.

Now, this was supposed to be a quick and easy little project but after three broken glass vases I was ready to pull every last piece of hair out.  It was as if my hands were made of jello because I kept dropping the glass vases.  Crazy!  I finally got two done and figured why push my luck for any more.  

I just took the pieces of t-shirt "rope" and started at the bottom of the vase and wrapped them around and around until it was nice and tight.  Then I added the next color and then the next.  I wanted these to be something I could use again so I just added some Valentine Garland around it and that way it is a temporary holiday vase.

I hope you enjoy making your own and maybe have better luck than I did with keeping the glass in one piece.

 Just take your infinity "rope" scarf and start wrapping them around the jars.  I did it like you would wrap a rubberband around something--kind of a figure eight wrap.  

 Display them with a few pieces of Valentine's Day Garland

Have fun!!


  1. What a darling idea! I am so impressed...I NEVER would have thought of that! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  2. You are so creative and resourceful! Talk about re-purposing discarded, old items!

  3. That is such a cute idea...I would have never thought of that! loving it!

  4. So nifty and cute! Haha I did the same thing with a project a few months ago where I broke the glass in three different frames. Irritating to say the least!

  5. super clever - well done - and a nice end result!

  6. These turned out so well! Can't wait to try wrapping a few candles that way! What a clever idea!
