A simple hack to turn an old candle pretty! Yes a post on how to decorate candles and this time its a burlap ribbon wrapped candles ! You wont believe how gorgeous they actually look.
This project is simple but a lifesaver for all the unattractive candles lying around at home. I am a hoarder of scented candles but over time they lose their pretty appeal, especially when they start drooling down . Lately, my obsession has shifted to jars, especially when I think about all the drooling and wax drippings which can be avoided. However, then I realized, the jar also becomes ugly with little wax sticking here and there, after you start using the candle . Look how untidy it looks now!
Well I have a great solution for hiding them beautifully! I wrapped the jar with burlap ribbon and voila! Burlap ribbon wrapped candles !!
Materials required to make burlap ribbon wrapped candles :
- Burlap ribbons
- Old candle
How to decorate candle and make burlap ribbon wrapped candle :
A little detail in your project never hurts. So, here is how I made it. I used blue shaded hemp chord and added silver beads at small intervals. Cut out the burlap ribbon in size to match the height of the jar and just enough to cover around it.
I held the burlap ribbon around the jar and secured it by simply running the hemp twine around it few times and finished it with a little bow.
You should see the beauty when its lit up. Much prettier than the original jar version 😉 A few more closeup pics of the burlap ribbon wrapped candle holder. You can use the same idea for pillar candles as well, but be sure to keep the ribbon restricted to the center and not till the wick.
Did you like this idea? Will post more home decor related posts this year 🙂
