World Market Whitewash & Gold Wood Taper Candle Holders | Re-use It Wednesday

Back a couple of years ago while perusing the World Market website I came across these candle holders. I had seen them on an Instagram account before,  thought they were cute so I bought them. Unfortunately after having them a month or so I really didn't care for them,  so into a drawer they went.

One day around Thanksgiving as I was searching through the drawers I saw them and an idea to "re-use" them popped in my head. I had been eyeing candle holders similar to these for a while, so I 


  • Clear Gorilla Glue for crafts
  • 4 - 5in round plaques
  • 4 - 4in round plaques
  • 6 pkg ½in round beads w/⅛in hole
  • White nylon thread
  • Hot glue + glue gun
  • Black craft paint
  • Antique gold rub & buff
  • 2 sets of 3 'whitewash and gold bottle taper candle holders '


  • Wipe down candle holders
  • Apply glue around the top edge of holders (below)

  • Once glue is applied flip matching holder and place on top. Apply pressure until set (30 seconds)
  • Repeat with remaining holders

  • Once glued let it setup for about 24 hours.
  • Grab 3 - 4in round plaques and mark center. Place holder on top and trace around bottom.

  • Next glue a 4in round plaque to a 5in round plaque. Let setup for 24 hours. 

  • Then glue holders to base. Let set for 24 hours
  • Once set glue beads around base of holder and plaques

  • For the beads around the center and the top I strung them on thread and did a dry fit before using the hot glue to set them in place.

  • Paint holders, then rub & buff, finally add candles.
I finished just in time to use them in this past Christmas decor in the dining room...

Then they were moved to the foyer once Christmas was over...

As of now only 2 of the 3 are being used...

So what do you think? Do you have candle holders that can be re-used?

Enjoy your day! ♡ Tina
