Wire Wrapped Candle

This is a great way to jazz up a store bought candle. You can use candles of any size and shape.

1 yard (1mt) length of jewelry wire

Charm

Beads

Sequins

Candle

Instructions

These candles are great for centerpieces or gift giving.

Take your length of jewelry wire and thread the beads, charms and sequins onto the length of wire. You can secure each bead into place when it is on the candle.

Wrap the wire around the candle.

Place the beads in random pattern around the candle. You can secure the beads with a small amount of glue or use a crimp bead.

Once the wire is tight there really is no need to secure the beads unless you intend on moving the candle a lot.

I centered the charm in the middle of my candle with the sequins and beads just scattered around the candle.

You can complete these candles in so many different themes.

Baby Charms – For Showers or mums to be

Wedding Charms – For wedding favors or bridal gifts

Birth Stones – Secure a birth stone for a birthday gift

Christmas Charms – Great last minute gifts

You are only limited by your imagination!
