How to Decorate a Candle With Decorative Paper Napkin.

3 Materials
30 Minutes
Here's a simple DIY project I did that you can do as well! Using a candle and a paper napkin, you can create the most beautiful decor. You can decorate with any design you want.

This is all you need:

Let' s get started: Start by setting up your work area. I collected my materials and got to work. Make sure you are working on a heat resistant surface.

How to do create this DIY:

1) The first thing you want to do is separate the layers of paper napkin. You only want to use the printed paper.

2) Then you want to carefully and lightly iron the paper napkin onto the candle. The wax heats up and sticks to the paper.
As you are ironing the napkin onto the candle, be careful not to make any wrinkles, you want it to be smooth.

3) Cover the entire outer area of the candle. Once you are done, trim off the excess paper and clean the edges.
And voila ,all done! Hope you have a go with this , it's very easy and is a super versatile project! These also make a wonderful gift :) You can choose to decorate with additional embellishments.

    Hello Sarinasala 1 my question its about using a hair dryer will it help better or is the heat not enough to melt the candle to make the paper stick to it? Thanks

    An idea I got from your project is to decoupage a napkin to a clear glass cylinder shaped vase and then you can replace the candles after they are used up.
