Faux Wrapped Wood Candles


I have been loving all the wood carvings I have seen lately on the internet and in magazines. I thought it would be so great to have candles wrapped in wood and carved however you wanted them. Cool, right? Well, until I figure out how to make the real thing, I came up with an easy alternative.

I grabbed all the candles I had around the house and also some wood grain shelf paper.

The wood grain on this paper looks pretty real and will work perfect around my candles.

I wrapped all the candles with the paper and used a black Sharpie marker to make all my "carvings".

I love how they turned out! They will give me the look I am wanting until I can get the real thing.
