DIY Gold Polka Dot Candle Holder

Polka dots are just about the cutest thing, and there's something about metallic polka dots that make them even better... So, that is why I decided to try out this idea for a candle holder.  I was really happy with how it turned out!

You will need:
  • Glass candle holder (check your dollar store for good options)
  • Circle stickers (I used smiley faces and other "teacher" stickers, haha)
  • Gold metallic spray paint

First, place your stickers onto your candle holder.  You can do these in a very symmetrical pattern, but I decided to concentrate my dots at the bottom and taper out toward the top.  Sort of a polka dotted ombre..

Next, on a protected surface, spray paint the candle holder.

Let it dry and then peel off your stickers.  So simple!

I love the pattern it makes on the table runner and wall, too!


  1. This is so cute!!! My mom made a candle holder for me and it is sort of a metallic splatter look. Not sure how she did it but maybe similar to what you did.

    1. Thank you! Yours sounds really cute! I wonder if she used maybe a spray bottle with water to break up the paint...?

  2. I actually have that spray paint :D I've been looking for ways to dress up some candle holders for the wedding and I'm loving how this looks lit up. I'll be trying this one out.
