How to make rock candle holders

Candles are a very easy way to add both decor and relaxation to any room of a home. Although you can buy candles at the store, they often come in boring jars and are usually quite expensive.
Instead of jars, these pretty candles are made with rocks. With their natural and tranquil look, you will be relaxed in no time. It's just like bringing a little bit of the spa home with you. Check out the video and instructions to get started.

Materials
- Latex gloves
- Epoxy glue
- Plastic bottle cap
- Popsicle stick
- Rocks
- Painters tape
- Push pin
- Black felt
- Scissors
- Hot glue gun
- Tealight candles
Instructions
1. Put on latex gloves and squeeze out some epoxy glue into a bottle cap.
2. Spread some epoxy glue onto a rock with the popsicle stick. Press another rock to the glue, so that you have two rocks stacked on top of one another.
3. Wrap painters tape around the rocks to secure them to one another while the epoxy dries. Once dry, peel off the tape.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 using progressively smaller rocks until you have four or five rocks stacked on top of one another.
5. Place a small drop of epoxy on the rock at the top. Press the push pin into the epoxy so the pin sticks upward.
6. Cut a small circle out of the black felt. Glue the felt onto the bottom of the stacked rocks with a hot glue gun.
7. Place the tealight candle on top of all the rocks so the pin of the push pin goes through the candle.
