A new year calls for a new look in my home. Details matter that is why in 2017 I am incorporating detailed upgrades to my home. I'm inspired by those beautiful asymmetrical metallic candle covers but it's expensive. Luckily, I found a money-saving way to hack this copycat version of a copper candle cover for under $10!
Three 3/16" x 36" wooden dowels
mason jar lid ring
Krylon copper spray paint
(Simple square candle holder)
1. Cut the wooden dowels into four 6 inch, four 3.5 inch and three 3 inch sticks.
2. Hot glue the 6 inch sticks into a square, then the 3.5 inches into a square. Let it dry completely before going to step 3.
3. Connect the corners of the small square with the large square using hot glue. Make sure the corner stick are glued on at an angle to line up with the large square. Use the remaining 3 inch sticks to make a pyramid by gluing the corners together. Let the glue dry completely before going to step 4.
4.Spray paint the structures with copper paint all around. Also spray paint the mason jar lid ring. Let the glue dry.
5. Put the candle inside the mason jar lid ring and the copper candle cover over the candle. Use a small tea light for the pyramid cover but it's still cool without a candle.
