Dahlia Candle Holder

  • Votive1 Pin-it%402x


We co-opted an oyster shooter glass to use as a tea light holder perfect for al fresco dining. It’s paired it with a shot of neon because we just couldn’t help ourselves. The neon cord feels like the perfect shot of pink to offset the lush green of summer dinners on the patio. For bringing a bit of the garden inside the small glass can also double as the perfect container for a hanging plant.

Unroll the neon cord from the card and measure 18” from the end.

Tl3s Pin-it%402x

Wrap the cord around the tea light holder at the 18” mark.

Tl4s Pin-it%402x

Tie a double knot, making sure the cord fits snugly around the holder. About an inch from the top rim.

Tl5s Pin-it%402x

Remove the cord from the holder (so you don’t get glue on it) and add a dab of superglue to your knot.

Tl6s Pin-it%402x

Snip the long end.

Tl7s Pin-it%402x

Fold the loop you’ve made in half in order to determine where the next knot should be placed.

Tl8s Pin-it%402x

Tie a knot there with the cord you just cut and add another dab of glue.

Tl9s Pin-it%402x

Trim the end once the glue has dried.

Tl10s Pin-it%402x

Cut the long end of the cord so that it’s about 18”. Now you’ll have two matching pieces of cord knotted to your loop.

Tl11s Pin-it%402x

Tie a third knot in between the first two. You''ll be dividing the loop into quarters.

Give it a dab of glue, trim the knot and cut the third strip about 18” from the knot.

Tl13s Pin-it%402x

Repeat with your fourth knot.

Trim the fourth length of cord and any cord that’s a bit too long. They should all be the same length when you are finished.
