Wire Wrapped Candle
1 yard (1mt) length of jewelry wire
This is a great way to jazz up a store bought candle. You can use candles of any size and shape.
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!
