How-to DIY Faux Birch Candles for $1.00!

I'm sharing how you can create your own faux Birch candles. You can do it for $1.00! It's a great PB knock-off! All you need is your own candles and some "wood" contact paper from the Dollar Tree.
*I would also say that you will not want to burn the candles with the paper on them.*
You could use a candle in a glass if you want to burn the candle. In that case, you would cover the glass instead of the actual candle.

    My biggest question with contact paper & anything round is: how do you get it to go on flat?!? I'm new to using it for updating/decorating & this seems to be my biggest hurdle. Thanks!

      A cylinder is easy to cover if you lay it on the side and started by lining up the base edge with the paper edge then roll the cylinder on the tacky side of paper, just be sure to keep it even.
