Candles come in all different sizes, colors, scents, and prices.
One of my favorite candles is...
an ivory colored, inexpensive, no scent candle.
That's right no scent.
I like having a candle (or two or three) in the kitchen.
I also like having a candle as a centerpiece on the kitchen table or in the living room.
But, I do not want a scented candle near my food or drink.
I don't want the smell to compete with the delicious aroma of my food.
I also don't want to risk the candle smell penetrating into our food or drinks.
That's why I use cheap, ivory colored candles...
glammed up a bit.
Here's how I transformed this basic candle into a fall statement piece.
For this project, I used sewing pins.
They penetrate into the candle easily, and makes it a non-permanent solution.
I can easily remove the twine and embellishment and decorate the candle again and again.
Start by inserting one pin through the twine.
Wrap it around tightly to your desired length.
Finish it off with another pin, lining them up on the back of the candle.
Make sure to go through the twine.
I like having the twine down toward the bottom, allowing room for the candle to burn down some before I need to adjust the twine.
I glued a pumpkin embellishment (from my scrapbook supplies) onto the twine.
I finished it off by tying a separate piece of twine into a bow.
Placed on top of a yard sale candle holder suits me fine.
Because I used pins, I want to position the candle where the pins don't show.
The candle is now pretty on its own, even when not lit, adding a little fall decor.
If you burn a candle with added embellishments, take special care making sure the twine or embellishments don't get too hot or catch on fire.
