How To Make A Caned Candle Holder
–Glass hurricane candle holders
–Hot glue gun + hot glue sticks
-Caning in style of your choice (this is the caning I used)
–Flat oval reed in 1/4″ width
Step One: Cut a section of the caning to fit the circumference of your hurricane. My caning came rolled up, so it very easily wrapped around my hurricanes without my having to hold it in place.
Step Two: After the width of the caning is cut, trim each piece to the height of each hurricane.
Step Three: Use a hot glue gun to attach the caning at the seam. Don’t overdo it on the glue, or it will seep out and become visible.
Step Four: Trim pieces of flat reed to wrap around the top, bottom, and along the seam of the caning. You’ll need three pieces for each hurricane. Trim them a bit longer than what you think you’ll need at first. You can trim them more precisely in the next step.
Step Five: Use hot glue to attach the flat reed across the top and bottom of the hurricanes as well as along the seam. As you get to the end of each strip, trim the edges to fit perfectly in place. You may want to use masking tape to hold the glue in place as you work your way around the perimeter of the hurricane.
I love the texture and warmth that these candle holders add to my coffee table display! I think it would be really fun to utilize the rest of my caning to make an entire set. They’d make a dramatic dining table centerpiece, don’t you think?
