Homemade Candle Holders: DIY Ideas For Tealights, Votives And More

From Networx's Sayward Rebhal:

I can’t even remember the last time I bought a candle holder. Actually, I don’t know that I’ve ever bought a candle holder, come to think of it. And why would I? No need, when there are so many fun and functional freebies just lying around, ready to be upcycled into an eco-friendly fire display.

Truly, there are about a million and one ways to turn old odds and ends into new candle holders – with results ranging from the quirky to the elegant to the edible, and everything in between. Here are a few of my favorites.
