DIY Upcycle: Glass Gem Votive Holder

Glass Gem Votive Holder

Getting Started

Want to dress up a glass votive holder? Create a beautiful candle holder by gluing gemstones to the holder! Whether clear or colored beads, glass gem votive holders will bring lovely ambient lighting into your home. Plus, they’re very budget-friendly!

For this project, we chose Arrow’s TR550 All Purpose Glue Gun with removable precision nozzle and an integrated drip tray. The precise feed worked perfectly for the small gemstones, and the drip tray was a big help between gluing and attaching gemstones.
