I have lots of dollar store candle holders AKA wide mouth flower vases. I use them for weddings, and parties to line the walkways. I saw the most charming glass vase makeover using wood veneer from Mrs. Craftberry bush and I had to try it.
Glass wide mouth vases with straight sides (you can buy them online but can sometimes find them at Walmart and craft stores.
wood veneer I bought mine at craft store in the vinyl section
measure how tall you want the wood veneer to be and cut with your paper cutter to get a straight line, or use a straight edge ruler and razor blade. Surprisingly veneer will cut great in your paper cutter. I did mine different heights because I had different sizes of glass vases. I like how each one is different. but if you like this look you could cut the wood veneer at different heights to get this look even if your vases are the same size.
Use your double stick tape and run it along the bottom edge of your wood veneer. Make sure you go to the very end. Then run another length along the top of the veneer. You can either put the double stick tape on the glass vase or the veneer it’s up to you. This is to keep the veneer straight and in place before you hot glue it together.
With the vase standing up set the veneer on a table and against the vase to make sure the bottom is even with the base of the vase. wrap the veneer around the vase and overlap or cut the excess. (I measured and cut my to fit perfectly)
Hot glue the side piece of the wood veneer s to the vase so that the ends stay secure. Drop your candle in to the vase and poof your done.
I know you think crafting should be tricky or hard but sometime its just supper easy! I think the hardest part of this project was getting out all my supplies. I’m so in love with my new wood veneer candle holders I think I’ll use them this fall and then on my Thanksgiving table! Follow along on my Instagram for more fun Ideas.
