Patriotic Decorated Candles

I had a lot of fun with this one.   I’ve been playing with decorations for the 4th of July, and the thought of decorated candles come naturally to me.  (I guess it’s because I love the look and feel of candlelight).

Patriotic Decorated Candles


As usual, it’s an incredibly easy project to do.

I started off with some pillar candles, one each in red, white & blue.

Then I got some Offray Ribbon that had those colors.


Using double sided tape, I put the ribbon on the candles.  Then I got out some holographic star stickers that were found in the kid’s section at Michaels.

Peeling off the stars was the hardest part of this project.  I actually needed a pin to get the stickers off of the sheet.  I started to add the stickers on and around the ribbon.  And the final result, a set of candles with as much sparkle as the holiday!

So easy to do, but so unique.  Hope you’ll give it a try!

Happy Creating everyone!
