Holly here today with a tutorial on using vellum to decorate votive candles. I'm sharing a few candle designs with you that could be used as decorations for a wedding, baby shower, garden party or home decor.
Here's the supplies I used:
Various clear votive candle holders
Double Sided Tape
Decorative Stamps and ink
Ribbon & Jute Twine
To decorate the large candle, I stamped two pieces of 4 x 11 inch vellum with decorative stamps.
I then scored the vellum at 1/2 inches and adhered the two pieces together like you would to make a rosette. Use double side tape to adhere the vellum around the candle.
Another way to decorate a votive is to use a border punch along a strip of vellum.
You can embellish your votive's anyway your like. I added some liquid pearls and a ribbon bow around one and then added some white vellum flowers cut from Flower Shoppe to another.
To decorate a square votive, I used embossed vellum.
I embossed 4- 2 1/2 inch squares of vellum and then adhered them to the sides of the votive.
I hope this vellum candle tutorial inspires you to brighten up your day or nights!
