Hard Rock Candle

Give your candle some edge with this hard rock inspired candle.

So last week I showcased my Nailed Candle.

Now I'm taking it a step further and it's just as easy.

This candle kind of reminds me of a studded leather jacket.

The only materials are a candle and upholstery tacks.

I was able to find a black candle at Hobby Lobby and the tacks I picked up from Jo-Anns fabric but you can also pick them up at Lowe's.

And of course you can do any pattern you want but this one I think resembles the buttoning up of a jacket.

First I began with the two vertical dotted lines.

Next simply add the top and bottom horizontal dotted lines all the way around the candle.

Rock on!
