Decorative Thanksgiving Candles

Hi friends! Joy here! Candles are a great addition to tables, mantels and many nice dinners and holiday celebrations. I made these using clear glass candles from the Dollar Store, SEI Yesteryear Sundries, wood grain paper from the Chalet paper pack and SEI Blooms & Blossoms chalkboard tags.

I love taking inexpensive items and using lovely paper and embellishments to make them perfect for any occasion!

I created the tiny banners using the Yesteryear Sundries buttons, leaves, gems and flags. Glue Dots and my ATG gun helped hold everything in place. Well, the gems are self adhesive so they didn't need any help at all. They stuck right on the chalkboard tags. I glued twine to the top and bottom of the candles to help give them a finished appearance.

I cut the paper, wrapped it around the candles and held it in place using my ATG gun. To be safe, I started my paper well below the lip of the candle. Even so, I will only burn this while keeping an eye on it. I covered the chalkboard tags with chalk, wiped it off and then wrote on each one leaving a chalky look to the edges. I punched holes and set eyelets in the corners of the tags using my Crop a Dile Big Bite. I like the look of the eyelets and they also provide a nice way for the twine to string through and help tie the tags to the candles.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
