Day 8- Candle

 Day 8
Christmas Candle

This little candle is so versatile.  You can use it as a decoration on your table or mantle or place it in a cello bag and give it as a hostess gift.  The best part?  It is super fast and easy to do.

Start with a white candle (or other color if you choose.)
Cut a boarder of printed paper to fit the middle of the candle.  I used Little Yellow Bicycle, Wonder and Wishes.  I love the Home for Christmas boarder paper.  It was perfect; I just cut out the strips and used them as they were.

Wrap the paper around the candle, overlapping just a bit in the back and cut off the remainder.  Use a strong adhesive (scor- pal tape or a tape gun) to hold the paper to the candle.
Tie a little raffia around the middle.  Ribbon would work well also.
I used poinsettias by Prima but you could use any flower you have on hand or punch some out of paper.  Use Pearl headed pins to pin the flower to the middle just to the side of the raffia knot.

That’s it you are finished.  To give as a gift, make a tag that says”May the light of Christmas be yours all season long.” Use some of the scraps of paper to trim the tag. Tie it all together with more raffia.
