Your Candles

ReUse


Tumbler ReUse: Creative Candleholders

We put together a quick and easy guide with steps you can follow to re-use any candle glass, and now we're sharing some fun things to do with your new collection of tumblers.


Inspired by our March Seasonal scent, Wood Cabin, I thought it may be a great idea to incorporate some forest-friendly décor into my apartment.


I’ve always loved decoupage and vintage botanical ephemera, so I decided to share a simple, easy, and nature-inspired project reusing Keap tumblers.

What you’ll need:

  • Keap tumbler
  • Mod Podge
  • Epherma (I chose botanical prints, but you can choose florals, animals, etc.)
  • Foam brush



To save on time, I decided to purchase pre-cut, vintage botanical prints from Etsy. Because some of the cut-outs are extremely delicate, I recommend applying a thin layer of Mod Podge directly onto the glass of where the cut-outs will lay. Using your fingers or tweezers, gently lay the cut-out on top of the glue. If there are any bumps, creases, or bubbles, smooth out the cut-out immediately before the Mod Podge gets too tacky. Apply a thin layer of Modge Podge over the top of the cut-out. Allow your tumbler to dry completely. Once dried, you can place a tea light (or anything, really!) inside the tumbler and enjoy!

These botanical inspired tumblers add a touch of nature to get you through the cold winter months.

Thanks for reading,

Yours,
