Here’s a brilliant idea: invite your pals over for a wine and crafts night (we recommend starting with these simple eucalyptus wreaths), and then use the empty bottles to craft these simply stunning candle holders. Fill each bottle with pine sprigs and berries collected during winter walks, and then top them off with taper candles. These Scandinavian-inspired beauties will make any space feel merry and bright.

Glass Bottle Candle Holders

What you’ll need:

  • Clean glass bottles
  • Pine sprigs, berries, and seeded eucalyptus
  • Copper coupling (such as this one from Home Depot)
  • e6000 adhesive
  • White taper candles

Arrange small sprigs and berry branches inside each bottle.

Fill each bottle with water to about 1 inch below the top.

Adhere the copper coupling to the opening of the bottle using e6000. Let dry before topping with a candle. In water, the arrangements will last at least one week.

Hint, hint: When you’re ready to change the look, pour out the water and use a pair of tweezers to remove the branches and berries.
