Yet again I am impressed by the power of spray paint. I went to my local Goodwill the other day looking for unique bottles for an upcoming project. While there I stumbled upon these cheapy glass candle holders. They were nothing special, but I liked the twisted pattern of the glass. I figured a little spray paint could definitely improve their look. What resulted were these DIY thrifted ombre candle holders that fit in perfectly with my decor!
Just look at those new ombre of colors!
Materials to make your own DIY Thrifted Ombre Candle Holders:
- Montana Gold Spray paint in your choice of colors. I used strawberry, pink pink, bazooka joe, shrimp light, shrimp, yolk, crocus, viola, and malachite dark.
- Unique shaped thrifted candle holders
- A covered workspace outside
As you can see above, the original candle holders weren’t anything to write home about, but the shape was fun.
To begin I gave the candle holders and quick clean and dry. Then I took them outside to my trusty old carboard box to spray paint them in an ombre pattern.
I love the Montana Gold spray paint because it is a stain acrylic paint that blends really well and give great coverage. Just spray paint the top section all the way around. Then move on to the next color and allow the overspray from the can to layer over the previous color creating the gradient for you.
Once the paint dries, your new candle holders are ready for a few colorful taper candles to coordinate with the colors.
Such a simple project, but the gradient color colors really brings out the texture of the glass and makes them so unique! For more of my previous thrifted treasures, check out my coffee table makeover.
