This is a tutorial I did a few years ago HERE. I still love my candles and have made a few more since then.
So let’s get started. I rarely shop at the Dollar Stores but that’s a great place to buy these pillar candles. ($1 at Dollar Tree)
I used this Ivory Linen Finish paper but you can use whatever you have. The linen paper has some beige color to it and a nice texture so it added to the look I was trying to achieve.
This particular print I copied as a 5 by 7 but I made others full page and cut them down.
I trimmed the top and bottom to get the perfect size.
You need some overlap but not too much...so I marked and trimmed....
then I used double stick tape. You could glue but I LOVE double stick tape!
Stick on one side…
Lay it down and wrap around....
And this is how it will look...
and then the FUN begins!
I loved deciding what ribbon or embellishment to use! Vintage lace and trims are the best!
I already had some bigger versions of this pillar candle in other colors so I covered them, too!
And the nice thing about this project, if you get carried away and cover ALL of your candles in Christmas paper....
it will be easy to take off after Christmas! heehee!
And visit Babs for a beautiful post HERE using flameless candles. I want to make some of these, too!
