These shimmery candle holders couldn’t be any more beautiful -- or easier to make. Just cover the inside of a mason jar with a mixture of glue and water, add a bunch of glitter and roll around until the sides are coated. Any color glitter will do, although we’re partial to silver -- it reminds us of snow falling.
