Christ Candle

One old Christmas card (cut out), three little gem stickers from the sticker box, glue and about 15 rubber bands transformed our plain white candle into a lovely Christ Candle. I am sure that there are many more elaborate and gorgeous ways to decorate a candle. This was simple and worked. Gotta love that.
The before picture is here.

  1. O cool! This is a craft I think I can do this year. I have old Christmas cards. I can get a candle. It's simple enough that I can fit it in. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Melanie,

    Leave the rubber bands on for a good couple of hours to let it dry if your card is particularly stiff like mine was. I was tempted to peek and had to re-glue the bottom corners when I removed the bands too early.

  8. I used rubber cement, but I think fast grab tacky glue would work just as well. That is the closest thing the cold "hot glue" I have ever seen. Like I said, give it lots of time to dry with lots of rubber bands holding it down. I really did use about 15 from the top to the bottom of the picture. The gem stickers stuck by themselves.
