Making Soda Can Holders for Christmas Candles
Gather all the materials needed below:
Red and green felt
Swiss knife or cutter
Tea light candle
Cut the soda can in the middle using a Swiss knife or a cutter.
Fit the upper part of the soda can to the bottom part of it. This will make the can shorter and also safer to handle since the sharp edges will be hidden later when we cover this part of the can.
Measure the thickness of the can in a piece of red felt then cut this appropriately.
Hot glue the red felt around the soda can.
Cut a small strip of green felt. Hot glue this strip on the upper part of the red covering. This will serve as the upper lining of the holder.
Add a design to the lining.
Cut another strip of green felt, then hot glue this on the bottom part of the red covering. This will be the lower lining of the candle holder. Add a design to this as well.
Cut several Christmas shapes or designs from the green felt. This will depend on your favorite symbols or shapes. For this, we used musical notes and symbols.
Hot glue the shapes around the can in the middle part of it.
You can now put the tea light candle on top of your candle holder.
You are all set now to light your candle!
