Dressing Up Your Candles

Here is an idea on how to dress up some plain candles
for the winter season.

I’m using white candles, decorative tissue paper (I found this newspaper print at Target), and Mod Podge.
I folded the tissue across at the width I wanted and licked it 🙂 – so I could just gently rip each strip. I like the look of a ripped edge rather than a straight cut for tissue.
Mod Podge the candle then place the tissue over it.
 Once they were dry  I placed the candles in terracotta pots.
Filled the pot with tiny pine cones from Joann’s around the candle.
This photo is blurry but those are little charms from the jewelry section at the craft store and jewelry twine.
 The pots are also from Joann’s.
These are cute for any ledge around the house.
How pretty for a center piece in a dining room.
Candles with a little natural element.
(I would have collected the pine cones in my yard but for $5 – worth it)
