Fall Project - Candle Rings
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.
