I just launched a new copper trend series with an updated glass lampshade which now has a copper ring. This week I have a DIY copper candle holder tutorial for you that I made to go in the hallway on the shelf.

I like the idea of having a light source on a table or shelf as a welcome in a hallway. I like to think about the elements that welcome the family or guests into a home and what they say. In our hallway we have a shelf that has a bowl in which we can dump our car keys, with my partridge wood sign on the wall. I like that the sign declares ‘this is OUR home’ to the kids, this is especially important to me as they have struggled with moving around a lot. I also have a wreath or artwork above the shelf, which changes depending on the season. In the autumn/winter it housed the pompom wreath which conveyed a warm and fuzzy welcome! At Christmas there was a seasonal eucalyptus wreath to declare the Christmas season with light and fragrance.

The shelf also houses a reed diffuser which is a great way to create a feeling of coming home with a pleasant and welcoming fragrance.

Make this copper candle holder

So to make this candle holder with copper elements, I used white air dry clay.

and a copper solder ring coupler like this:

I shaped the clay around the solder ring and placed the candle into the ring and into the clay to make a snug fit for the candle in the clay.

I left it to dry, and voila a custom-made copper candle holder.
