Faux Moss Candlestick Holders

Do you find crystal candlesticks too formal?  If you're looking for a more natural approach, try this moss candleholder project.  It incorporates faux moss with styrofoam brand foam cones to make a look that can't help but go green.

Moss Candleholders

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cones, 12" x 4", two
  • Green sheet moss, two bags
  • Green flower-safe spray paint (optional)
  • Serrated knife
  • Paraffin or candle stub
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • STYROFOAM™ brand foam safe spray adhesive
  • Low temperature glue gun with glue sticks
  • White craft glue
  • Two taper candles
     

Note: Candleholders are for decorative use only.

Steps:

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin. Cut 1 1/2" from tip of each foam cone. Cut small hole into center of flat tip, just large enough for base of taper candle. Twist candles into holders and remove.
     
  2. Spray foam cone with adhesive, working on small sections at a time; cover with moss, leaving cone base exposed. Let dry completely.
     
  3. If a brighter green is preferred, spray paint moss-covered cones with two to three coats of paint; let dry.
     
  4. Glue candles into tops of cones. Glue bits of moss around base to hide exposed glue or foam.
