Christmas Tree Collection with 3D Candle Holder (Tutorial)





To make a 3D Christmas candle cookie you will need:

 For the base of the candle holder, you will need three circles in graduated sizes.
I used 3", 2-3/4", and 2-1/4" from these cutters.
For the actual candle, I used 9 (nine) 1-1/4" circles, but you can determine how tall you want the candle.
 I cut out a tear drop cookie and then pinched it to look more like a flame.
And I cut out a semi-circle, cut out the middle and shaped it like a handle.

"Glue" the three base circles together with gold glaze
Glue the candle circles together with red glaze.

Start at the top of the candle, and flood around the sides to the bottom with red glaze.

 Flood the candle base, handle, and flame with gold glaze.

After the gold glaze has dried for about an hour, attach the handle to the base and
wedge something under it (I used an extra cookie) to keep the handle in place until it dries completely.

This is where I forgot to keep taking photos. :(
I apologize.....I was doing way too many things at once.....
3D Christmas tree and lots more as you'll see below.

After the base and the candle have dried for several hours, glue the candle to the base.
Prepare a rack or something similar to prop up the flame on the top.
Glue the flame to the top of the candle and allow to dry overnight. 
OH.....and I added "wax drips" around the top of the candle with red glaze. :)
(I'm including my Christmas tree photo with the contraption I used to 
prop up the star.....so you could see something similar.)


I had such fun creating the 3D tree, presents, and candle holder.
I went a little crazie with photos. :)
