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).

St. Patrick’s Day Candle

In the St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape you may have noticed a small candle in the background.

I used my Grandmother’s ‘depression’ bowl with a plain white pillar candle & some shamrock ‘scatter’.   It brought a pop of color into an empty corner.  And it worked for the tablescape with the patterned placemats. It was simple enough that it didn’t compete with the busyness of the placemats.

But, I just can’t leave well enough alone.  It just disappeared when I used the plain/solid sided placemats.  Plain white just wouldn’t do for me.  I had to add ‘more’. I used some wire edged shamrock ribbon and some glitter stickers to add color.

I measured the ribbon around the candle. Added about an inch to it.  I cut the ribbon and folded the end under, over lapping the raw edge.  Using two straight pins, I anchored the ribbon to the candle.  But that still wasn’t enough.  So I added some glitter shamrock stickers above and below the ribbon.  That was all it needed.  Now it really adds a pop of color to the plain, boring corner of the room.

It’s now strong enough that it doesn’t disappear anymore.

I love an easy project!  This could be used for any decor, as an accent piece or a centerpiece.  You can use this idea anytime.  Whether it’s for everyday or a holiday.  Just change up the ribbon to go with what ever you’re decorating for!  You can have so much fun with this one! Continue reading
