In the Designer's Words: "Coloring books are fun - but I never do anything with the images after I color them. This time I took it out of the book - and put it on a candle holder. I have an orange sofa - so it's hard to find things that match... Problem solved - I made my own. Be sure to test the mod podge on the paper and with coloring before you do it on your finished project. Copic markers didn't transfer but some other ones did. You could do this with a wooden candle holder too - or any object that you wanted to put your coloring on."
Transform those coloring book pages and mandalas you have spent hours shading in to DIY home décor accents with this DIY craft idea. The Cute Coloring Book Candleholder shows you how to use your already-colored mandala into a stunning candleholder for your home. Shading in mandalas can take hours at a time, so you should absolutely preserve that effort and moment of self-expression for all to see. If you are not on the hunt for a candleholder, you could easily use this Mod Podge technique to make other coloring book page crafts.

I feel like this DIY would be a great idea to use with a thrift store candle stick or pillar holder to give it new life. You could come up with a very eclectic looking grouping of candle holders on your mantel for the holidays. Although, with the mandala coloring book designs, you'd get a great boho or gypsy inspired look! What are copic markers?
