vellum photo candle holder DIY
I had seen these vellum photo candle holders on Pinterest, and loved them. The link was broken, so I'm not sure if there was a DIY for the ones I had seen, so I had to get creative with them myself. I finally got around to making them.
Here's my simple tutorial.
I gathered my supplies: candles, pictures printed on vellum in the correct size (this depends on how tall your candles are), a paper trimmer, and a spray adhesive.
I picked up these candles at the $1 store. They had this removable paper, which came off easily.
Afterwards, I trimmed my pictures down to size.
I flipped my pictures over, and stuck the ends down with a little tape (vellum tends to curl).
After spraying the adhesive, I stuck them on the candles. I didn't notice until later that my printer was running out of ink. They still turned out okay though:
Nothing could be easier!
I will definitely be making more of these.
