home: made [ candle holders ]
A massive trend at the moment is animal candle holders, everything from zoo animals to woodland creatures. We have looked at how you can create something just as fun but for a lot less money.
There are two popular ways to create this look, and it basically comes down to size. You can either opt for a party candle [ great for kids birthdays ] or a larger table centre piece for a dinner party perhaps. Either way involves the same preparation and materials; the chosen animal [ for plastic zoo & farm assortments try amazon ], a drill and some paint [ They look great painted black, white or gold btw ].
Below are a couple of tutorials to follow.
