Fall Project - Candle Rings

 
 


Hi there, I have another Fall project to share with you today.

 

Fall Candle Rings

 
 
While setting out my fall decorations I realized that my candles needed some attention.
 
The first set that I decorated were the set of 3 flameless candles that sit on my mantel.
 
The supplies I used were burlap, felt and the candles. You can also do this with your glass jar candles.
 
 
 
 
 
I cut the burlap to fit around each candle.
 
 
To fasten the burlap around the candle I used the Scotch Multi-Purpose Fasteners. These are super sticky!
 
 
 
For my embellishment, I made a poofy felt flower.

To make this flower:
1. Cut out one small circle for your base and 6 or 7 bigger circles for the petals. I just used two various sized containers that I had in my craft room.
2. Run a line of hot glue down the center of one of the big circles
3. Fold it in half
4. Fold one corner in half and hot glue it in the middle.
5. Take the other corner and fold it back and hot glue it. It will look like an "S" shape.
6. Hot glue that petal to the smaller base circle.
7. Continue making the other petals.
8. Glue remaining petals to your base.
9. At this step you can either embellish with fall decorations, buttons, etc, or you can add on more petals to make a full, complete flower.
 
Here is a good video showing you how to make this flower if needed.
 
 
Here are some more pictures of the candles on my mantel.

 
 
I also decided I would try this technique using my metal candle holders that are on my dining table.
 
They turned out great!
 
For these embellishments, I made a Rosette flower and added on some Prima leaves and a flower center. I have them sitting in a tray with some fall candle sprays.
 
 
 
Please see my YouTube video below for an up close look at this project.
 
 
I hope you are inspired by this simple project! It was a lot of fun and super easy but the results are so pretty.

  4. I love the candles! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
