Create a beautiful gift for a friend or even just for you with this DIY Clay Votive Candle Holder! The easy Christmas craft will look stunning when placed on a coffee table or fireplace mantel.

From the blogger: "Nothing is cozier and more personal than a little candle. Candles and votive holders are inexpensive and you can use them for home decor for every season and occasion. I am absolutely obsessed with candles and votive holders. The best part of it all is that they are actually easy and you can customize them according to your fantasy. You don’t have to spend many on a fancy new candle holder. With a little bit of creativity, you can just use about anything at your home to convert it to a votive candle holder. There are so many ideas and gorgeous DIY ideas available on internet for candle holders that involve clay. I have been loving some of the simple clay decor items on Pinterest and thought it was about time I tried my hand at this votive candle holder. I love working with clay and I utterly enjoyed making these votive candle holders. So grab your stuff and get crafty!"

I would not think to use clay to make a candle holder, but you pulled this one off brilliantly. I love the way the light comes through the stars in the candle. The shadows on the wall are fun and give you a great atmosphere for storytelling or snuggling with someone special.
