Need some candles for wedding tables or a centerpiece or a dinner hosted at school or a auditorium and do not want to cost alot then why not make some button candles with purchased candles in your choice of size or even a homemade candle in a pretty jar add some lace,ribbon or burlap and some decorative or plain buttons. These are so very quick and easy to do and a great way to decorate. A good step by step picture tutorial. Thanks.

what an easy idea to use up ribbon and buttons. I always have votive holders on hand, and of course, lots of buttons and ribbons. I don't have a wedding to make favors for, but these will make pretty decorations to scatter around the home.

lovely favour so on trend with that shabby chic look and o so vintage look to
