- A candle with holder that you have around the house (a large size was used here) or purchase an inexpensive one
- A roll of medium sized twine
- Decorative burlap ribbon 2” – 3” wide with a lace strip in the center.
- Thin ric rac in green (could also use ribbon)
- Glue Gun
- Glue sticks
- Start at the very bottom, outside edge of the candle and use the glue gun to apply a row of twine.
- Continue wrapping the twine and gluing it to the jar in even rows.
- Once you get a little more than halfway up the candle, snip the twine and securely glue the end down on the twine and jar.
- Wrap the burlap ribbon around the jar and carefully trim it to a little longer than the circumference of the jar.
- Use the glue gun to secure the top and bottom of the ribbon around the jar making sure that it is adhered in a straight line. When you get to the opposite end, trim any excess and glue both ends down together.
- Take the ric rack and glue it to the center of the lace that is inside the burlap ribbon.
- Continue wrapping the rest of the candle and stop at the top, outside edge.
- Light and display!
