Dollar Store Candle Vases

I adore the Dollar Store.

Yes, there is cheap junk there, but there are fun little basics there too.

I try to think outside of the box when it comes to items from there.

You can get decent service ware there. Plates, glasses, bowls, mugs…

Candle sticks, vases, candle plates…

Cheap craft items too.

I took several items from and made these super pretty dollar store candle vases that rock my beachy room look.

Let’s start with two vases, silicone glue (it’s just caulk in silicone form) and several bags of marbles – whatever colors you want. I went with blue and clear to go well with my room.

MIGHT I MENTION: These beautiful candle vases would look stunning outside in the evening at dusk set up on your patio. They are pretty perfect for outdoor use, and wind would not be able to move these sturdy vases.

The vases and marbles are from the Dollar Store. The glue from a mega-store.

Begin by adding either a dot or a line of glue. As I went on, I found that a line of glue was easier to work with.

Place your stones along the edge of the bottom.

Continue placing stones, I added the next line in the space between the lower line of marbles. They stack well resting on the bottom two stones.

Once the vase is as covered as you like, allow the glue to dry for a couple of days.

Then, take a bit of twine and wrap the vases with it, securing with a knot.

Time to fill!

I used sand (you can find small bags at the aquarium store or in pet supply) or at the hardware store.

I then added some of these clam shells around a dollar votive.

That is it. They are finished!

    My 2 granddaughters and I got the beads from the dollar store and I saw where I should use E 6000 glue. Purchased it. Glue would not hold beads on. Very sad

    • says:

      Hi Linda, I recommend using the Clear Caulk or silicone, it has a great hold, and it makes the project indoor and outdoor usable. I cannot tell you about E-6000 because I have not used it, also E-6000 is much more expensive. I can get a whole tube of silicone caulk for about $3.25 and it lasts a while.
      Thanks!

    I pass up lots of clever idea, but this one I can`t pass up. It is so easy, inexpensive, and charming.

    • says:

      Hi Laura! thanks so much, they are so pretty with the candles in them! You can make a lot too for just a couple dollars!
      thanks!

    How cute is that?! I think these would make a wonderful gift to a friend we’re visiting later this month. She will have these out in her garden I think. Thanks!

  4. Cynthia Nye says:

    Very pretty. Waxed linen cord could also be used for a different look. If filled with more sand, a tea light would work? Love this idea and the color schemes are almost endless! :-)

    • says:

      Hi Cynthia! yes, any cord would do, but twine or rope would stand up well outside. I have already burned my candles up and replaced them, tea lights would be darling as well, you could keep the sand the same height!
      thanks!

    these are awesome love the whole idea thanks xx

  6. Eddie says:

    Awesome idea. Great for the beach house theme we are going for. I would recommend using tea light candles or some small self-contained candle so the wax doesn’t get on the sand and shells. Great idea still.

    • says:

      Hi Eddie, thanks so much! They are a great match in our beachy room. Yes, drip less candles would be the best idea, or even battery tea lights too, so they wouldn’t blow out in the wind if you are outside with them.
      Thanks!

    I had the same probleme with the E600 it always worked on glas stuff before. But not this time

    • says:

      Hi Silvia! I don’t recommend E6000, silicone is super for many applications, including out door use, since it’s weather resistant. I’m sure E6000 has it’s uses, but for great stick and longevity I recommend the silicone.
