I’m Rachel from HyperHypoMama and I am so excited to share this summery DIY with you. These sea glass candle holders are not only beautiful, they are so easy to make. If you can wield a hot glue gun, you can make these incredible candle holders I am bringing you today.
We are in the middle of decorating our daughter’s room to something more mature. Apparently, she is too old for sparkly things. I don’t know what she’s talking about because you are never too old for anything sparkly.

Easy DIY Sea Glass Candle Holders
However, if glitter isn’t your thing and you prefer more serene home décor you are going to love these candle holders.
To make these candle holders all you need is:
Since these are going in a bed room we used LED tea light candles. We also purchased our sea glass from a craft store, but you can also find sea glass on Amazon. I wish we had easy access to a beach to collect our own. It would make the candle holders even more special.
Time to get started.
1) Place your tea light candle in the middle a clear work space. Next form a single layer circle with the sea glass around your candle.
2) Once you have your circle in place, gently place the next layer on top of the bottom layer of glass. Do not glue it down yet. Just place it there to make sure you have the glass where you want it. You want the second later to overlap the cracks in the bottom layer. When you have glass where you want it, glue the layers together one piece at a time. When you are done, you should be able to pick up both layers as one piece. If you are not, you need to add some more hot glue.
3) Continue forming the layers until the candle holder passes a layer or two higher than the candle. Your sea glass candle holder is done. You should be able to slip your candle out of the center to replace it as needed.
Look how gorgeous these are. We’ve had these candle holders for over a month now and they have held up fantastic. You can also use an epoxy glue or silicone sealant to glue to sea glass together. Just make sure the glue you choose to use is clear.
I hope you enjoyed project as much as I did. If you make your own sea glass candle holders please share your pictures in the comments. You might also like this sea glass candle idea where you actually embed the sea glass into wax.
