Candles and ribbons go hand-in-hand and can dress up any drab corner you might have.
Ribbons are a great way to fancy up those old, dusty candles you might have on your mantel or bookshelf. And, most everyone has a least one candle somewhere around their home. They can be such a fun decoration! Here are a few ways to use them around your house and make it feel homier.
Ribbon candles are perfect for creating pretty table centerpieces. Make them for birthday presents, wedding decorations or just because you want to. Candles and ribbons go great with nearly every setting. Other uses could include bookends, temporary lighting or anything you can think up!
And don’t forget the holidays!
Christmas, Easter, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day and Valentine’s Day are all great ideas to display themed candles. Use a color theme that will help them stand out. And, personalize them with sayings, greetings or names to make them unique.
Use either scrap ribbon you already have, or order some custom ribbon rolls for any of these designs. And the great part is that any candle will look great with any ribbon we have available! Choose your favorite color or match it to a room’s existing decor. Secure each design with hot glue or small pins. Or simply tie it on!
Adding personalized or colored ribbon to any candle is a great way to add character without too much expense. From wide width ribbon to smaller widths that are layered, you can create almost any look! Choose from satin, grosgrain or even organza to customize your candle. And, add an embellishment such as a rosette or button to hide the seam or any small defects in ribbon you might already have on hand.
There are so many ways to decorate any size candle. From wrapping wide ribbon around them to adding them to a holder that has a simple bow on it, candles are definitely a fun piece to have around.
