It’s starting to get cold here in PA, and when that happens I get out my candles. They keep my apartment a little bit warmer and make the atmosphere more relaxing. Every Fall I do a few candle tutorials and this is the first one of the season. I know we’re not quite into autumn yet, but its about 64 degrees here, so it’s close enough for me.
I always save my jars because they can be used for something, whether it be craft and food storage or, in this case, candle holders.
If you have the jars already, that’s great! You will just need to make a craft store run for the following items.
Candle holder craft supplies
- hot glue gun
- recycled jars
- white ribbon
- lace ribbon
- burlap ribbon (wide)
- rope and burlap flowers
Step 1: wrap the jar with burlap ribbon
The burlap ribbon will be the base for the decorative wrap. Use your glue gun to adhere the ribbon to the jar.
Step 2: wrap the jars with white and lace ribbon
Glue the white ribbon around the center of two of the jars, preferably the smaller two.
Glue the lace ribbon around the larger jar.
Make sure your ribbons meet in the back where the burlap ribbon was glued together.
Step 3: decorate your jars with fall flowers
Glue on the rope and burlap flowers for the final touch of the fall-inspired candle holders.
Add the candles and you’re finished! Use them as a table centerpiece or set them on your windowsill.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think! Leave your thoughts in the comments.
