If you’re ever in need of a quick and cheap candelabra to add lighting to your table, consider upside down wine and martini glasses! Below we’ll show you how to assemble a Candelabra centerpiece using Dollar Store bought items. We’ve used a pink and white color scheme, but the options are endless, so choose a color scheme that fits your space.
Here’s how it adds up:
- 3 Assorted Glasses in varying heights… $3
- 3 Candles… $3
- 1 Bouquet of Fake Flowers… $1
- 1 Silver Tray… $1 [optional; you can also place these ‘candelabras’ directly onto your table, the silver tray is to catch any drippings from the wax candles]
GRAND TOTAL: $8
Step 1: Lay out your supplies. You’ll need a hot glue gun.
Step 2: Remove all the flowers from the stems.
Step 3: Hot glue gun the candles to the bottom of the wine and martini glasses.
Step 4: Take 2 flowers and hold them together with the stems facing one another.
Step 5: Delicately place the glass over the pair of flowers on top of the silver tray. Continue for all 3 glasses. Scatter any remaining flowers on the tray.
And Voilda, you’re done!
