I have these old, yucky looking candles and I didn’t know what to do with them. I really don’t have the money to buy new, pretty ones like I’d like. So, what to do?
Pinterest to the rescue! I saw where someone had taken scrapbook paper and Mod Podged them. Easy peasy and so pretty! So I took my old and yucky candles and turned them into new candles. They turned out so cute and I only spent about $2.
Here’s the old candles. Even Twilight thinks I’m crazy and I should just throw them out!
I love the look he’s giving me!
Isn’t he cute?
Cut scrapbook paper to fit around candle. Coat candle with Mod Podge and wrap paper around it. Squish out air bubbles and smooth out the paper. Be sure to pay attention to the edges!
When the bottom coat is dry, cover the top of the paper with the Mod Podge; I did two coats on top. When it was dry, I cut a ribbon and secured it with a straight pin in the knot and tied it in a bow. The pin helps hold the ribbon tight and keeps it in place while you tie it. Plus you never have to worry about the ribbon slipping down on your candle!
Voila! New pretty candles from old yucky candles!
