Fall Ombre Candleholder

Create a lovely addition to your fall décor using a few items from your local Dollar Tree store. This fall ombre candle craft yields a decorative candleholder that can be used all season long and enjoyed for years to come! Plus, by using glass vases of various shapes and tissue paper of various colors, your new candleholder is truly one of a kind.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

  • Glass Vase
  • Tissue Paper
  • White Glue
  • LED Tealight Candles*
  • Paintbrush
  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Scissors
  • Poster Board

Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix glue with water and stir with a whisk (or paintbrush) until the water takes on a milky consistency (see image #1).
  2. Select the color of tissue paper that you will use. We chose fall colors and an ombre effect, progressively transitioning from light to dark (see image #2).
  3. Cut a template of the shaped tissue paper pattern you want to use on your vase. (Suggestions include leaves, dots, squares, or anything else you can dream up!) Cut as many of the shapes that you can out of each piece of tissue paper (see image #3).
  4. Starting at the opening of the vase, layer the glue-water mixture on the glass with a paint brush. Adhere the tissue paper to the jar and repeat all the way around, overlapping each piece (see image #4).
  5. Paint glue over the paper pieces and repeat until the entire vase is covered.

*We strongly recommend using LED tealight candles for this craft because an open flame is a fire hazard.
