Tools & Materials

Materials
  • Gift wrap or scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Tongue depressor

Instructions

Step 1

Cut gift wrap or scrapbook paper to fit the height of your pillar candles.

 

 

Step 2

Heat the sides of the candle with a heat gun to just before melting point— about 30 seconds or so. Attach paper to the soft wax and smooth down the paper surface with a tongue depressor.

 

Step 3

Arrange candles as a centerpiece. As with all candles, keep them within sight and out of the reach of children. Trim excess paper as the candle burns down.
