Chunky Candleholders

By:

Dramatic, textural papers give foam candleholders the look of high-end decorator finishes. Black adds drama to any setting and conveys a modern slant daytime into evening.

Chunky Candleholders

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cubes, 5", four
  • Black textured decorative paper, 12" x 12", five sheets
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Wooden skewers, four
  • Paper trimmer or scissors
  • Craft knife with sharp blade
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • White pillar candles, 3" x 6", two

Instructions:

  1. Use glue gun to secure two foam cubes together, one on top of the other. Apply glue to ends of two skewers and insert 2" apart through top of foam to bottom; trim excess. Repeat for second cube pair.
     
  2. Use scissors or paper trimmer to cut eight 5-1/8" x 10-1/8" pieces from decorative paper. In addition, cut four 5-1/8" squares.
     
  3. Spread thin, even coat of glue onto one side of first candleholder. Position paper piece over glue, flush with one side and top edge; smooth paper with fingers.
