DIY COPPER STRIPED CANDLE HOLDERS

This 1/4″ copper tape is fantastic. It isn’t as delicate as the one I used for wall art, the thinner size allows for creating more intricate designs, although I still kept it pretty darn simple this time around, too.
Taping

Wrap horizontal rings of copper tape around glass candle holders, smoothing you finger over the tape while removing the backing at the same time. It isn’t the easiest thing in the world trying to keep the tape straight and make sure the ends match perfectly, and you usually don’t fully succeed at this either, but to that we say, “It’s all good.”

Why do we recommend gloves? Wanted to take the precaution of not leaving behind more finger grease than was necessary.

We started the copper stripes off closer together at the base and then spread them further apart towards the top. This is a unique but still minor variation on a regular stripes pattern that would keep the design very simple and modern.

Those greens in the pitcher complement the copper SO beautifully, don’t you think?
