I love the current copper trend but many of the accessories that I love are crazy expensive. I recently came across some copper end caps while walking through my local Lowe’s and instantly knew they were the perfect size to make some pretty copper tealight holders.

The easiest copper tea light holders!

And they only cost me a few dollars!

I called this post “DIY” tealight holders…but there’s really no DIY to it. You just buy the end caps and pop the tealight candles in. It couldn’t be any simpler!

That’s the BEST kind of DIY in my opinion!

  1. Do these sit flat? The slip caps I see have a bit of a bubble on the back

      Yes, these are totally flat on the bottom!

  2. What’s an end cap? I tried to find these on Lowe’s website and nothing like this was shown.
    Super cute!

    1. Thanks Tamela! You’re better off just going to the plumbing section and you’ll find a bunch of them with all the copper parts! However, you’ll find them on the Lowe’s website under “copper slip cap”

  3. Hi! What size are these?
