Basic to Bedazzling – a Pillar Candles Makeover
Turn plain white pillar candles into dazzling decor with twine and upholstery tacks!
It all started with three basic white pillar candles, a skein of hemp twine, and a whole lot of upholstery brads that I was supposed to return that I originally purchased for a chair make-over. I never got around to using them and then kept forgetting back – I’m notorious for not returning things!
After looking around and not finding anything, I decided to make my own.
HOW TO TURN BASIC PILLAR CANDLES INTO DAZZLING DECOR
You will need:
- White pillar candles
- hemp twine
- upholstery nails
- a glue gun and glue
How to make them:
- Glue the twine to the middle of your candle and wrap the twine down the length, securing with glue on the bottom.
- Add upholstery tacks along the top edge of the hemp by pressing them directly into the candle.
