Here's an easy way to dress up inexpensive candles and truly personalize your wedding ceremony or party. The beads, tape and metallic thread lend an elegance and charm for quick embellishments.
 

White Taper Candles
 

Materials:

  • White taper candles (purchased from a discount store)
  • Kreinik #12 Braid 4006 Rosehip, 3240 Opal
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon 032C Pearl , 001C Silver
  • Diamond Beadlets®
  • 1 roll of double-sided red-liner Treasure Tape
  • Ziploc® bag or shallow tray

Instructions:

  1. Apply tape to the base of your candle. (Make sure your tape is above the part of the candle which sits in a holder- you can place it in a holder and make a line as a guide)
     
  2. Remove the red liner from your tape. Begin embellishing with thread. We recommend starting at one edge and working upwards. Use the liner to press your threads into the tape occasionally.
     
  3. When you are done embellishing, place your taper in a shallow tray or a Ziploc® bag and pour beadlets over the exposed tape. Swirl with fingers to cover fully, and tap to remove excess beadlets.

Note: This technique is intended primarily for decorative candles. If you intend to burn the candle, be careful not to let it burn down to the decorated area. For large pillar candles, you can burn them down part way and then insert a tea light inside, and light that instead.
 

Kreinik threads available through needlework stores or www.kreinik.com.
