To dress up some simple glass candle holders with a little red, white and blue, I pulled out my hot glue gun and some bakers twine.

I put a small dab of hot glue on the outside of the glass and just wrapped the twine around a few times, cut and glued the other end. Β Pretty simple.

Keeping with my ‘flag’ theme this month, I used three candle holders, one wrapped in blue and two in red. Β  I love the simplicity of these. Β  I also love that when the holiday is over, I can easily remove the twine and reuse it for something else.

For a little variation on the same theme, I wrapped the candle holders in more of a stripe pattern, still using just a dab of hot glue to secure both ends.
