How huge is your love for candles? To be more specific, are you a go-all-out type of girl when it comes to making your own candles? Well, one thing is for sure, I go gaga for them. There’s just something incredible and addictive when it comes to decorated candle ideas. It’s easy to make and you get to go wild with it! However, in this particular compilation, we’re about to show you something a little different.
Instead of making the candle (maybe a little bit of that too), we’re actually going to be decorating the outside of the candle! Ever seen those fancy candles with cute wrappings and personalized photos?
With the awesome goodies we’ve got in store for you today, you’re really going to love decorating these candles with our collection of brilliant designs and ideas. Also, if you weren’t so much into making candles before, you’re really not going to stop after trying out these tutorials.
There are many ways to decorate a candle. Despite how challenging it may seem at first, it’s actually quite easy enough to make more than one kind of design.
Not only will you be able to create beautiful candles, but you’ll also be able to save money rather than purchasing similar ones for a rather depressing price.
There are many different materials and supplies you can use: Beads, lace, seashells, wood, gemstones, glitter, and even faux plants. You could also grab a mason jar or candle holder and decorate those if you don’t want to add any additional embellishments to pillar candles.
