Glass Jar Candle ( also known as prayer candles, Novena candles) You can find these lots of places. I first found them at the grocery store but subsequently ordered a case of them from Dollar Tree’s website.
Scrapbook or wrapping papers
Embellishments…ribbon, buttons, beads, die cuts etc.
I like to combine patterns and textures so I used three different papers:
You can make the “wrap” cover as much or as little of the candle as you like. Now it’s time to embellish which is the fun part! I used various things I had on hand like buttons, self adhesive rhinestones, ribbon, silver tinsel pipecleaners. I chose a couple of diecuts from a package by K&CO and adhered to the center with Mod Podge. Then I added these strips of rhinestones (Michaels Dollar Section):
I also added some buttons using a dimensional adhesive or you can use hot glue:
And some more coordinating self adhesive rhinestones on top of the buttons. To finish, I like to wrap the top “lip” of the candle with ribbon or you can use wire, beading thread or whatever you can think of. I used some vintage looking ribbon yarn and a silver tinsel pipe cleaner on these.
Hopefully this made sense but if you have any questions, please drop a comment on my blog or email me! There’s really no right or wrong here. Thanks so much Michele for having me over for Homemade Christmas!
