Ribbon Candles - Pinterest Success #17


The choices in ribbon that you can buy, are so fantastic. Any color or pattern can be found and when I saw this festive St. Patrick's Day ribbon, with sparkly shamrocks, I thought it would work great to dress up some plain white candles. There are many variations of this on Pinterest, using ribbon, fabric and burlap. This pin caught my eye, because I love green and white together.

I found the different types of ribbon and the different sizes of candles at Michaels. I simply chose the style and width of ribbon for each, wrapped it around the candle and used some pretty pins, I already had, to hold the ribbon in place.

On one of the candles, I layered two different types of ribbon - it is all in the little details. This couldn't have been any easier and I think it has a great impact. Really, the hardest part was pushing the pins into the candles :-)

Now, their prettiness will light my kitchen, on the snowy nights we have ahead of us, this week.

Happy Wednesday!
