DIY Hostess Gifts: Decorative Candle

By Virginia Bittinger


Decorative Candle


  • Dollar Store Candle
  • Burlap
  • Glue
  • Brooch


Cut a piece of burlap or use burlap ribbon, as seen here, and wrap around the candle. Secure the burlap with E6000 or other strong glue.  It is only necessary to glue the burlap at the seam.

Once the burlap is secure, pin a beautiful brooch to the burlap on the front of the candle.

This makes a two-in-one gift. Once your hostess is finished with the candle, she has a beautiful brooch to wear. Just make sure she knows that the brooch can be removed from the candle
