I love this easy DIY project by wedding designer, Beth Helmstetter. What a lovely ambiance, especially for a cozy winter reception. Best of all, you could reuse these candle holders for your holiday decorating (which will be my excuse to make them:)). Using eyelet fabric would be my first choice, but this would also be easy to re-create using some craft paper. Step by step instructions and tips can be found here. I also included the basic steps below.
-Inexpensive Straight Cylinder vase or candle holder (can be found for $3 to $10 at craft stores like Michael’s)
-Eyelet Material or material of choice by the yard (We found ours in the fashion district of downtown LA, but there are plenty of resources online as well)
-Spray Fabric Adhesive
1. First measure the height of your glass hurricane and cut the eyelet material to the appropriate width.
2. Spray the fabric adhesive onto the hurricane holder and wrap the candle slowly with the material, being sure to smooth out any wrinkles as you apply the material.
3. Trim the material that isn’t straight or that might be overflowing at the top of the candle holder. Allow to dry for up to 24 hours prior to use.
Just for fun, here are a few more pictures from this wedding (this would blend together so well in the beautiful Utah mountains):
