These yarn wrapped candles are the perfect way to add a bright & cheery touch of spring to your table!
And they couldn’t be any easier to make. You just need candles (I picked up mine at Target for under two bucks a piece), colorful yarn, and some glue.
Start by glueing one end of your yarn to the candle, then get to wrapping. Make sure you wrap tightly, and add a dot of glue every so often. If you’re using hot glue like I did, be sure to just use a little dot. If the glue builds up it creates bumps under your yarn.
Switch up the colors to make different designs.
Then they’re ready to display! As always use caution when working with hot glue, and make sure you keep the yarn far enough away from the tops of your candles!
Sydney and I are still working on a fun DIY today, something that will add a little sparkle to her wardrobe. While we finish that, I want to share these super easy and free personalized gift bags for giving bottles of wine, champagne, etc.
The only supplies you need are the brown bag the bottle came in, string or twine, and a sharpie. Feel free to doodle and get creative, perfect handwriting not required! But if you’d like a little help, you can always print something off and trace it!
