Candy Cane Candle

Hi Everyone! I was guest posting yesterday over at Darling Doodles. It was great to be a part of  Brie’s 12 Days of Gift-mas series!
It`s not long now, just 3 short weeks until Santa slides down that chimney!

If your stuck on what to get the neighbour or teacher on your list hopefully you`ll be inspired to make this easy Candy Cane Candle.

Here are the supplies you need.
 Candy Cane Candle
  • a skinny but tall glass vase
  • votive holder
  • candy canes
  • small colored beads
  • tealight candle
  • glue gun & hot glue
  • embellishments like rafia, twine, bells
I unwrapped the plastic from the candy canes and glued them to the vase, be sure to put the glue down the length of the candy cane so they will stick well. Some of them are differents lengths but when you tie the rafia around it disguises the uneven lengths.

I then glued the vase to the votive holder, turn your votive holder upside down before gluing – it gives the candle a pedistal look.

Fill the vase with the colored beads and place your tealight on top. Tie the rafia and twine around the vase and add in the bell.

So simple. This would be beautiful on a Christmas table setting.
