Giving Your Old, Melted Candles a Makeover!

We lose power quite a bit in the PNW and our candles get a lot of use. They must not burn evenly, because the tops end up looking like creepy, Halloween candles! I'd rather look at "pretty" candles, so I gave mine a makeover!

Before Christmas, I found this beautiful birch bark wrapping paper at Pier 1--I bought it specifically to "wrap" my old candles and to make some Christmas ornaments.

Just measure, cut and wrap your candle--adhering with double stick tape. I also embellished them with leftover ribbon, burlap, string, tags etc. to tie in with Valentine's Day.

Obviously, I won't light these any more---flame, paper, not such a good mix! But I also "wrapped" all our battery operated candles so we're ready for the next power outage! Check out the full post for an extra, super easy "snow day" or "Frozen" craft!
