Illuminating My World Through Bangle Candle Holders

Hello there!

Here’s another craft DIY by A Homemaker’s World. This time its candle holders made from glass bangles.

There was this big box of old yet colorful and glittery bangles lying around my home for quite some time. In Indian traditions we consider broken bangles inauspicious for any further use. The bangles I had were a mix of broken and unbroken, yet old ones. So i carefully pulled out the whole ones and disposed off the broken ones.

I really wished to make something bright and colorful with these bangles, so decided to make a few candle holders.

I started by placing 12-15 bangles in a beautiful sequence as is usually worn on hands, a mix of 2-3 colors of bangles and a few glittery ones. I cut a round shaped cardboard to make the base of the candle holders. Next, I started gluing the bangles one on top of another in the sequence I had initially arranged the bangles in.  Finally, placed a golden ribbon (Gota Patti) around the base of the holders to enhance its beauty. I let glue of the candle holders dry overnight. And the next morning, the candle holders were ready to be used.

Below are a few images of the candle holders, there illuminating effect, how they enhance the decor of my living room, and there alternative use as well. Take a look!

I loved making these holders as they are being used not only as candle holders, but as multi-purpose article holders in my home. They look beautiful kept as center pieces and on side tables, and go perfectly with the traditional Indian decor of my home.

These can be made using old or new bangles. I am planning to make few more for my home, especially around the Diwali time when diyas and candles take center stage at Indian homes. Therefore, to avoid the mess of oil and wax spills , these beautiful candle/diya holders will work just fine.

      Absolutely right. I love repurposing things instead of disposing them off. Its just that you love certain things so much that you never want to let them away from yourself…:) what’s better than bringing out a beautiful piece of art and very usable…:)
