Summer Candle Holder!

Last week I did this post on Crafting a Green World and I thought it was too cute not to share on here too! If you're looking for some decor that screams summer, this project is perfect for you!

What You Will Need:

1. A water bottle

2. Scissors

3. Sand of some sort. I used sand that you would put in a sandbox, but you can use whatever you have on hand.

4. Rocks. I used filler rocks (I don't know if that's their official title, but that's what I call them)-- you can find a whole bag of filler rocks at the dollar store!

5. A candle. I used a flameless LED candle, but you could also use a real tea-light candle.

How To Do It:

1. Cut off the top of your bottle. I cut off a little bit more than half way.

2. Fill your bottle with sand.

3. Put your candle into the sand. If you're using a candle with a flame, put more sand in your bottle so that it pushes the candle above the plastic. (Side note: I haven't used this with a real candle before, so please be careful-- you don't want your candle to melt the plastic or catch it on fire.)

4. Add your rocks.

You're finished! Doesn't it say "summer" to you? I can definitely see this on a patio table or even at beach/summer wedding! Since I don't have either of those lovely things, I put mine by my aqua lantern and I'm loving it!
