Cute and Inexpensive Candlesticks


  • 1 small jar lid (from instant coffee or similar size)
  • 1 pill bottle (without its cover)
  • various types of pasta such as bows, twists etc.

  • craft glue
  • white paint
  • sparkles if desired.


Turn jar lid opening facing down. Glue bottom of pill bottle right side up to centre of jar lid. Place various types of pasta around base of pill bottle and a few up the sides a bit. After the glue is dried; paint the whole thing. While the paint is wet a bit of glitter may be added. Place a bright red, yellow or green candle in the holder and nobody will ever know how "frugal" this candlestick really is.

Sounds cute, but keep a good eye on it and don't let it burn down into the plastic part.
