CELEBRATIONS: Thread Wrapped Candles

Thread Wrapped Candles via homework | carolynshomework.comI saw some string wrapped candles in a catalog recently and thought what a great idea it was to jazz up some plain candles for a festive celebration.



Thread Wrapped Candles via homework | carolynshomework.comThis is such a budget friendly way to create a colorful centerpiece for a fun celebration. Everything I used for this project, I had on hand. The candles were purchased after the holidays on clearance. They’re Hanukkah candles. Larger than birthday cake candles and they come in a variety of colors and styles.
