In the midst of all my packing and getting ready to move I found some pillar candles. What do you do when you find candles?? You make something, right?
Good thing I hadn't packed up that glue gun yet.
I created these simple Valentine candles with a few scrap supplies and embellishments. It's a very easy project especially when you are limited on time. Maybe you need to make a quick gift for someone, decorated candles would make the perfect gift.
I have some of this cute pink burlap that I bought at Michael's. It comes in the perfect size to wrap a candle. Then just wrap some twine around the center and add an embellishment of your choice.
Simple and cute, huh?
You don't have any burlap? That's OK! Use scrapbook paper, it works just as nicely. I wrapped a crinkled piece of scrapbook paper around the candle and hot glued it. Then I too a piece of decorative scrapbook paper and cut out the scroll design part of the paper and wrapped it around the candle and glued it. I left some of the red paper on the top and bottom for some color.
Play with your paper placement, there are no rules. "Life is about creating yourself!"
I just dressed up the candle with a piece of red and white twin and a little love button.
This is the last one of my Valentine trio. I just love French script so I couldn't control myself in using it on my last candle. I wrapped some red twine a couple times to form a band and added a twill flower.
The possibilities are endless in decorating candles. I dressed up a few for my holiday decor, if you missed it then please visit here.
The whole project took me 20 minutes and now I have a really cute Valentine centerpiece of candles.
I did another simple candle decor that I will share next week, then that will be all the crafting I will be doing for awhile.We are getting ready to remodel our new home and I will be sharing that progress with you. Exciting stuff!!
If you missed my Valentine tree you can see it here.
