Festive Vellum Candleholders

By: Anna Fulcher Keyes

Adding a touch of color to brighten up your Christmas home decor isn't as difficult as you think! Just make some Festive Vellum Candleholders, gorgeous DIY Christmas decorations that are an inexpensive alternative to store bought candles. Your Christmas decorations should match your own design style, so why spend money on products that don't? All you'll need is a few of your favorite holiday stamps, and in no time, you'll be able to create vellum candleholders that are not only great handmade Christmas decorations, but also DIY Christmas gifts.


  • Glass candleholder or other glass container (juice glass, jar, etc.) with straight sides
  • Vellum
  • Dye ink or solvent ink pad(s)
  • Rubber stamps
  • Super sticky tape such as Scor-Tape, Red Liner Tape, Sticky Strip
  • Ribbon


  1. Measure height and circumference of glass container to determine width and length of vellum strip. Cut vellum accordingly
  2. Stamp desired images on vellum strip. Allow to dry thoroughly
  3. Adhere vellum around glass container using a strip of super sticky tape on each of the short ends of the vellum
  4. Wrap a length of sticky tape around the container overlapping the edge of the vellum at the top and bottom. Adhere ribbon to the tape around the container
  5. Embellish candleholder further as desired

Vellum is such a fun medium to use, right? I love the stuff. Candles are one of my favorite things to have around the house. When you have a ton of people to get gifts for, candles are an excellent option too. I know I could save some money by buying plain candles and using this craft to make the holders for them. I love it!

I am so in love with these festive vellum candle holders! I can probably give this as a gift or giveaway. It looks very expensive!
