Candle Makeover



I have had these candles in my family room for several years, and they are showing all the wear and tear from stray footballs knocking them down, dogs trying to eat them, and rambunctious children teetering them over. So I thought they would enjoy an hour in my craft room, getting a new makeover.  

It's so simple, I'll probably do this with every candle in my home!!

Pick your favorite scrapbook paper that you want to decorate with.  I chose a ColorBok paper pack from Walmart for $5.
Cut the paper to the width you prefer, and ink the edges to give it a more finished look.

Glue the paper to the candle with a hot glue gun.

Add any embellishment tag you would like--this one came with the ColorBok Paper Pack. I inked it and threaded a piece of ribbon through the back.

Voila!! In only a few minutes, you have given new life to not only the candles, but to the entire room!
