Candles A-Glow

Today we're gonna share a quick, easy, & inexpensive home decor' project. This would make a wonderful, unique gift as well . . . .
We've put together a beautiful candle setting using plain clear votive candle cups.
For the candle wraps, we've used pieces of white vellum that have been embossed with texture plates & the QuicKutz Tool. You can also use any of the Cuttlebug or Sizzix Embossing Folders, as well. Just remember tho' . . .The smaller your candle cup, the smaller your patterns should be!

After that, we dressed them up with some thin red satin ribbon & floral layers put together with a white eyelet.

For a beautiful presentation, we've placed them on a flat round mirror that we've stamped a flourish on with white StazOn Ink. For an extra added glimmer, add a few clear rhinestones!
This will make a wonderful Hostess Gift for the upcoming holiday parties on your schedule.

Or make one for your child's teacher, the next door neighbor, or your pastor's wife . . .

Don't forget about yourself! Match a set to your bathroom or place it in the front window for a welcoming glow to passersby.

We hope that you find some inspiration in today's project . . . .TaTa till next time!
