Try This: Steel Candle Covers

Make these galvanized steel candle covers with simple sheets of steel, nuts, bolts and pieces of wire from the hardware store.

STEP 3: Connecting 3-by-5-inch plates into a triangle shape makes a perfect cover for a narrow votive candle. The taller 3-by-9-inch plates, connected into a four-sided column, are a good fit with a pillar or a short taper candle.
