DIY on a Dime: Spring Salt Dough Candle Holders

Make your own Easter or Spring candle holders out of salt dough with this easy, child-friendly craft! Life as MOM contributor Janel [4]shows you how.

Spring Salt Dough Candle Holders

Back in February, I shared this tutorial for making Heart-Shaped Salt Dough Candle Holders [5]. But really, this craft isn’t just limited to Valentine’s Day. You can change up the look simply by changing the shape of your cookie cutter.

My girls and I had a lot of fun making some candle holders for Easter. I followed the same steps from the Heart-Shaped Salt Dough Tealight Candle Holder tutorial [5] and used both an egg shaped cookie cutter and a flower cookie cutter. The girls had a blast painting theirs to look like Easter eggs while I turned mine into a flower.

Adding Felt to Salt Dough Candle Holders

To finish them off a bit and help protect the tabletop, I added a layer of felt to the bottom of the candle holders. I just traced the holder onto felt, cut it out, and stuck it to the bottom with some hot glue. Simple. For my flower, I decided to add a little more dimension with some felt “leaves” at the bottom as well.

This truly is an easy and super inexpensive craft. They look great on as a decor accent on a side table or as part of a table centerpiece. Have fun and create some Salt Dough Candle Holders [5] with your kids!
