Easy Candle Decoration

I thought I would share a quick and easy way to transform your candles from boring to blingy!  IMG_1095

You’ll need some sort of wire and some beads big enough to slide down your wire.  Needle nose pliers will also come in handy.  I used some black jewelry wire and glass beads from  If I make more of these I’ll try using the memory wire next.  Keep in mind that larger, heavier beads will weigh your candle wrap down.IMG_1071IMG_1079

First, bend a little loop in one end of your wire to stop the beads from falling off:IMG_1073

Then just start stringing on your beads in any pattern you choose:IMG_1081 IMG_1084

You can make it as long as you want, I just kept going until I ran out of beads and ended up with about a 15 inch piece.   Longer is better in my opinion.IMG_1085

Now, just wrap it around your candle and enjoy! IMG_1087 IMG_1091IMG_1090Wouldn’t this be pretty for a holiday tablescape?  This same idea can be used to make beaded napkin rings.IMG_1093

  6. What a cute idea. I did this a few years ago but used stretchy string and had to glue it in place. I had seen it in a catalog for a fortune and was sure I could make it. I hadn't thought of doing it on the tapers, but love it. I followed you over from The Girl Creative. Thanks for sharing.
