This was so much fun! I love candles at any time of year, but at Christmas time, I like to get them out and decorate around the house. They can become a wonderful feature!


Image

This was so easy to whip up...

Just wrap around a strip of MME I Believe 'Berries' paper

Gather some Fancy Pants Christmas Magic Buttons

Some pins - to push into one of the holes in each button... (they look like little baubles then!)

And some [url]Deco Wrap Trim[/url] to finish off the edges of the paper,

And a star to top of your tree!

(I dont give my papered Candles away as gifts as I dont know how safe the paper is wrapped around the candle nor do I light them - they become decorations. But it would be fairly safe to apply just the buttons with pins without paper if you wanted to give away as gifts or light your candles :wink: )

Very pretty Mandy

You could try adding some mod podge to make them a bit safer to burn - maybe take one out in the back yard one night and let it burn all night in a safe spot

I LOVE IT! So cute Mandy! I would think it would be ok to burn as long as you condition it properly (ie. burn it under supervision for some length of time then extinguish it. Then next time you light it, it should only burn as far as the first time, leaving the outside bit whole). I probably haven't explained that very well but I hope SOMEONE knows what I mean :-)
