Laced up candles

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! You can enter HERE!

Candles with paper wrapped around them are nothing new, but I think this is a fun way to dress them up.

All you do is cut your paper to the size you need for your candle, cutting it smaller than the circumference of the candle. Then you punch the holes. I overlapped the ends, making sure the paper was lined up, so the holes would be lined up too. I used my Crop-A-Dile to do this part. I also set in some eyelets to reinforce the paper, also using my Crop-A-Dile. Then you just lace your ribbon in like you do a shoe!

Very cute and easy! I got the candles at the dollar store, and used scraps of paper and leftover ribbon from other projects. So it's cheap too!


  1. Great idea. I was thinking about picking up one of those Crop-A-Diles, my eyelet setter is just too much work!

  2. Oh, what an adorable idea! So many fun possibilities.


I love hearing from you!
