Candles are great accent pieces. They also make for a great mini canvas upon which to express your creative side. I like to dress them up with beads, wire, decorative tacks, pins – anything that you can just stick in the candle to give it a little pizzaz.
For this project I used a few simple jewelry findings, a wire cutter and wire.
The candles I’m using are already fairly pliable, in that I can stick the wire or tacks in without cracking the candle. If the candles are too hard you could warm the findings with warm water or a blow dryer. You could also warm the candle in the oven on the lowest temperature for a few minutes.
Just decorate to your liking. Very simple.
I did a trio of candles. Here is a before and after:
There are many ideas out there on how to decorate candles, I think this is one of the easiest. This project took me about an hour to complete.
Give it a try then please, do share…
