Upcycle Candles: Jazzing Them Up A little

Up-cycled Candles…

I have a few candles around the house that I never use, just as decoration and they always get hidden and pushed to the back of the bookshelves or placed in a draw due to them looking a bit plain and boring.

After tying a little bit of my favourite ribbons around them and placed a lovely bow at the front I now love them. I picked up the ribbon from Cath Kidston on my birthday at £4.00 for 3m (each roll).

 I am now showing them off to everyone who visits and they are now in pride place on my bedroom cupboard!! With a little bit of ribbon and my favourite polka dot,,, the possibility’s go on and on…
