- Hands up, I’ve got a glue gun now! Ho-ho-ho!

Hands up!

Ingredients for this craft;
Candle holders in glass from IKEA that I found in a thrift shop and buttons, also bought at a thrift store.

Tool;
The amazing glue gun! I haven’t used one of these before but to glue all the buttons on the glass I borrowed a glue gun and had fun!

Result;
As you can see pretty special candle holders! I like em’! You could embelish further with beads, glitter glue or anything that will stick on glass, but I liked them with just the buttons. They shine beautiful through the semi-transparent buttons!
