Presenting our first Remodelista video: get our ideas on re-purposing common household and potting shed items—clear glass wine bottles, galvanized buckets, empty paint cans—as candle holders.

Also see our previous posts DIY: Holiday Candelabra and DIY: Clear Wine Bottles as Candle Holders.

The video on creating DIY candle holders was produced by Solid and Gold and features Remodelista's Janet Hall.

Here are the components used in the projects:

Above L: Two-Quart Galvanized Bucket; $3.49 at Amazon. Above R: 15-Inch Pencil Candles are available in 16 colors; $13.50 for a tube of 12 at Crafted Candles. Also available in 6- and 18-inch lengths.

Above L: Empty Silver Pint Paint Cans; $2.49 at Create for Less. Above R: 10-Hour Unscented White Votives; $14.99 for a box of 72 (we like having a supply of these on hand at all times) at Amazon.
