We love candles and ‘mood lighting’ in our home, especially in the winter months.
So we have a lot of candles that are on timers that come on in the evenings and lamps with dimmers.
But real candles are nice to have on hand too. I buy these tall glass candles from Dollar Tree and ‘spruce them up a bit’!
This week I added some Velum paper with soft white designs to add to my white candles.
I did a tutorial a few years ago, so I’ll share it again today. You can either use paper you have or print out a nice image.
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 need to add a little something to these now!
And on one of our hikes we picked up this branch with pinecones still attached and I thought it looked so pretty! (thanks hubby for carrying it the whole way! LOTS to be thankful for!)
I’m joining Thankful Thursdays today!
