DIY Easter Candle Holders Tutorial

This was a sponsored post when it first went live in 2016 but we have updated DIY Easter Candle Holders Tutorial.

How often do you look on your cell at a craft store for inspiration?  I will look on Pinterest for inspiration rather than printing out tutorials like for this easter candle decoration.

I recently found this Easter Egg Candle Holder on Pinterest and wanted to create something similar, so I kept going back to my phone looking for directions.

DIY Easter Egg Candle Holders Tutorial

The original tutorial I found shows you how to create beaded eggs, but I found some that were already beaded and knew that these would save time and money.

You will need:

Start by drilling a hole into the ends of your Easter eggs. Mine turned out to be styrofoam so this was a little messy.

Drill a hole into your wooden plaques, going deeper into the wood on the bottom plaque.

Cut the length of the dowel to fit the number of eggs in your holder, with about 1/3 of an inch on each side.

Spray paint the top and bottom of the Candle Holder. Allow drying completely.

Next, weave the dowel into each egg and attach it to the wooden plaques. You can add wood glue in the holes if it is not a tight fit.
