Create holiday candle holders from AMACO, made from wire mesh and embossed foil. A group of three as shown would look wonderful as a table centerpiece.

Holiday Candle Holders


  • AMACO® WireForm®:
    • 50005E Sparkle Mesh, Aluminum
    • 50027M Designer’s Mesh, Brass
  • AMACO® ArtEmboss® soft embossing metal:
    • 50077F Bright Gold
  • Tea Light Candle Holders:
    • Small- 2"
    • Medium- 31/2"
    • Large- 5"
  • Christmas Tree punch
  • Jewelry Findings: Jump rings
  • Fiskars:
    • Scissors
    • 1/16" Hole Punch
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Ruler
  • Rubber Bands

Note: Read and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.

Note: Wear gloves to protect hands.

Steps to follow for each candle holder:

  1. From the aluminum WireForm® Sparkle Mesh, measure and cut out:
    • Small candle holder: four 4" x 41/2" rectangles.
    • Medium candle holder: four 4" x 6" rectangles.
    • Large candle holder: four 4" x 71/2" rectangles.
  2. Cut the two top corners off of the long end of each rectangle to form an “A” shaped peak.
  3. Wrap the four sparkle mesh rectangles around the tea light candle holder and secure with rubber bands.
  4. Pull two long wire strands from the brass WireForm®. Wrap these wires around the candle holder as shown. Remove the rubber bands.
  5. Fold each of the four sparkle mesh peaks downward as shown.
  6. Using the Christmas tree punch, punch out ten Christmas trees from the gold ArtEmboss® foil.
  7. Carefully punch a tiny hole at the top of each Christmas tree with the 1/16" hole punch.
  8. Attach the Christmas trees to the mesh using jump rings and needle nose pliers, as shown.
  9. Add tea candles to each candle holder for a beautiful holiday display.
