As I was going through my fall decor boxes, I found some copper fall cookie cutters I bought last year and never used. Do you do that too?

I originally was thinking of using them in a wreath or something, but I am glad I didn’t get around to it.

When I saw them this year, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them: turn them into copper candles!

I thought it would be beautiful to fill the cookie cutters with wax. But then after they burned out, there would just be a huge mess. Then it came to me… concrete!

How to Make Copper Candle Holders

Supplies:

  • Copper cookie cutters
  • Maker’s Mix craft concrete
    • You can use regular concrete for these candle holders, but I like that the Maker’s Mix is lightweight and super easy to use for this small project.
  • Tea light candles
    • You want to use the tea lights that come in their own metal cup. That way when you have burned down once candle, you can remove the old candle and insert a new one.
  • Wax paper

Mix together the concrete so it is the consistency of natural peanut butter (slightly runny, but can be scooped out). I mixed mine by adding the water first (4 Tbsp) then putting the Maker’s Mix on top of that 1/4 cup at a time (used about 1 1/4 cups total). Stir well so there are no lumps.

Place a piece of wax paper large enough to hold all your copper cookie cutters on the table. Fill the cookie cutters about 1/2 way up with the mixed concrete.

Place a tea light, with it’s metal cup, inside the center of each cookie cutter. Press it into the cement so the top of the tea light is flush with the top of the cookie cutter.

Fill up the rest of the cookie cutters with the mixed concrete. I found it was easiest to scoop it into the cookie cutter around the tea light with a plastic knife. Then used the knife to smooth the surface.

Let the concrete dry. Luckily the Maker’s Mix is a fast drying concrete because I am not very patient.

After about 10 minutes I was able to pick up the copper candle holders and knock off any concrete that had leaked out the bottom.
