Nail Polish Candle Holder

With Christmas right around the corner I've been looking for some easy handmade gift ideas. I had picked up a bag of glass gems from my local Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and I thought they'd be perfect for decorating votive holders. My Dollar Tree has a pretty good selection of candles and votive holders this time of year so I was able to get those for a dollar each too. I ended up using almost two bags of the glass gems for three candle holders so this whole project only cost $8. I had a lot of fun making these and hope the recipients love them too.

 All the different combinations were so fun to discover as I flipped over the finished gems. I used a clear glue meant for gluing glass to attach the gems after they had dried. What other nail polish crafts have you guys tried? I'd love to see links in the comments if you have something cool to share.


  1. Wow, these are lovely! Fabulous idea.

  2. Thanks so much guys! Everyone I gave them too really liked them and were surprised it was nail polish. Spreading the addiction any way I can. :)
