DIY PVC Candelabra

Take your home decor up a level with an elegant DIY candelabra.

Once used by kings in the 1800s to hold candles and torches, this multi-armed candle-tree became a popular home decor item. Today, candelabras are elegant, soft and romantic; they are used to set the tone of a room or tablescape.  Instead of using wax candles, incorporate battery operated candles for safety and to give off a beautiful warm glow.  With an old candle-stick, a few saucer plates and some PVC pipe you can create an elegant candelabra for your next dinner party.


(1) flat top candlestick per candelabra
pvc pipes
(1) pvc joint
(4) pvc corners
(5) small saucers
heavy-duty glue,
a pvc pipe cutter,
gemstone beads and crystals
any other embellishments


First, measure and cut your pvc pipe into four arms. I found it helpful to mark the cut points with a marker.

Using a PVC pipe cutter that you can find online or at any hardware store, carefully cut the pipe into four same size pieces. These will be used as the arms of the candelabra.

Using PVC cement glue, add glue to the inside of the pvc pipe joint and add the arms.

Make sure all four pieces are secure and even.

Glue the pvc corners onto the 4 ends of the pipes.

Paint the pvc pipes whatever color you want … I’m using white with a Rustoleum glitter accent!

Glue the pvc arm-piece on top of the candle base.

Once that is dried, glue the saucers on top of the pvc ends and one in the center. Let that dry overnight. Touch up any painting needed.

After the paint is dry, add your gems and jewels and other embellishments.

Place the candles on each one of the saucers – don’t forget to put one in the middle! I’m using battery operated candles for extra safety.

And there you have it, an easy and oh so elegant candelabra.  Channel your inner Liberace, Lady Gaga, and Luciano and let the beauty of your DIY  tea light candelabra hit the highest notes!
