I made a bunch of these candle holders as gifts, but this is the only one i have a picture of.  I got the punch bowl glass at the salvation army i then mod podged the poky pup onto the inside of the glass then i snipped up some fabric and and modpodged that into the glass.

is, the fabric really a safe choice for a candle? i mean, i dont know, but it just doesnt seem like a good choice.

i was worried about using fabric i also used paper so they both are probably a fire hazard but i sealed it with mod podge wich might make it even more dangerous i dont know if its flamable or not, but when i gave these away i put a candle in them that was allready in a glass case so it wouldnt melt or burn the cup. the ladies i gave these to had other ways to put the little cups to use like they said they were going to put potpouri or flowers in them. i just mostly liked making them,thats all.

I wonder if you could coat the fabric with some sort of nonflammable stuff once you podge it on...
hmmmmm...
It's perfect for short little flowers though.

I just picked up some cheap glass bottles the other day to screw around with. I'm sure they wont turn out as awesome as these cups did.

i think fire-resistant varnish is available in hardware stores. but maybe this'll darken the fabric significantly. nonetheless, great idea! i wonder if one can do the same with a small lightbulb? (drill hole at the bottom of the cup) Smiley
