DIY Christmas – Custom Decor Candles

DIY Christmas – Custom Decor Candles

Want to give your friend or family member that special gift that comes from the heart? Well, I got another idea for you to run with for your DIY Christmas – A Custom Decor Candle. Yeah, I know Scentsy is the big thing now, everything wickless, but sometimes your want to have a candle to add to your decor because it’s simply so beautiful. I have an easy way to either update your old candles, or create a magical gift for the family and friends in your life.

So I made these little beauties at the same time as I was Upcycling glass jars for Christmas gifts. I used some of the same supplies; ribbons, embellishments, old earrings and some upholstery tacks.

I started with some candles I purchased at Walmart. The large ones are scented, the smaller are unscented. Hobby Lobby had candles as well, but I was looking for the least expensive variety.

I gathered together my supplies.

Ribbons, tacks, some jewelry making supplies.

A few things from the paper crafting aisle as well.

Cuz seriously, who doesn’t want some bling in their life?

I then used the ribbon of choice and secured in the back with some upholstery tacks. They add a nice touch too, don’t you think?

After securing the ribbon, I embellished with a variety of my supplies.

A little paper crafting supplies with the flowers that I attached using a glue gun, and then some bling to dress it up.

I used a tack on the front to hold the tassel and key in place for this one.

And this got a little of everything.

And then I decided to mix things up by using some wire.

After adding a little bit of jewelry to the front, I secured it by twisting the wire on the back.

This little embellishment was an old earring from my niece that I added the charm to.
