Wedding Candle

As I've mentioned before I have been on a candle kick but it seems to be slowing down, at least for the time being...

Ok, so I've always been a fan of crafts that are easy and simple yet leave stunning results, but this one is almost too easy. It requires no skill what so ever.

Up to this point I've liked the fact that my candles so far have all been burnable, this one, not-so-much. It's one of those just for show candles. And it's too pretty it be burned anyway.

I can picture this candle placed on a mantle with a framed wedding picture surrounded by some wedding keepsakes.

For this project, I used a white pillar candle which stands about 8 inches tall.

For the decorations, all I used were these stick-on rhinestones I found in the scrapbook section at Hobby Lobby.

The pack contains 4 different swirly designs.

The rhinestones are all connected so you don't have to worry about placing each individual stud.

All you do is peel and stick – literally – and you're done!

I think it's a bit more sparkly in person, but you get the picture. :)
