DIY Speckled Egg Candle Holders

filed under

When at the craft store this past weekend, I happened upon the prettiest speckled eggs in the perfect colors and just had to get them. I wasn’t sure what I was going to craft with them, but I knew I could think of something. After bringing them into the studio I realized with a little support in the middle they could be turned into DIY speckled egg candle holders for Easter. After a little trial and error, I figured out the perfect technique to making my idea come to life.

Aren’t they adorable?!

Materials to make DIY Speckled Egg Candle Holders:

Begin by cutting the ends off each egg so that there is more surface area for them to attach to each other.

Next, press your dowel/skewer through the eggs to align them up and give them a little more stability. They are lightweight foam eggs after all.

Use hot glue to attach the eggs to each other as you press them onto the dowel/skewer.

Next, hot glue the eggs onto the marble tile and then hot glue the copper end cap onto the top of the eggs to finish out your candle holder.

As you can see from my photo, you can use any combo and quantity of eggs to create candle holders of different heights. But I wouldn’t use more than three or else the eggs become a little unstable even with the dowel rod in there.
