Materials List

  • Candles, of any size
  • Ribbon, of any style and color
  • Parchment Paper
  • Iron


  1. Cut a piece of parchment paper long enough to wrap around your candle.

  2. Select your ribbon.

  3. Wrap the ribbon around the candle in any layout you like best. I wanted four different layouts so I created four patterns.

  4. With the ribbon held secure to the candle, wrap the parchment paper around the candle.

  5. Iron the parchment paper, being sure to move the iron so you don't melt the candle.
