Ribbon Wrapped Candleholders

I don’t know about you, but I am done with Summer!  While I will miss bright sunny days, blooming hydrangeas and eating cold slices of watermelon, I’m ready to move on to Fall.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, and I especially love to decorate my home for the season. Last weekend I pulled out my fall tabletop décor and decided I needed to add a little something new this year. So, out came the hot glue gun, some beautiful May Arts ribbon and a couple of glass hurricanes.  A few hours later, I had just what I needed to update my fall dining table centerpiece….Ribbon Wrapped Candleholders.

Materials Needed:

  • Fall themed/colored scrapbook paper
  • Assorted sizes of glass candle hurricanes  ( I used three for this project)
  • Scissors—regular and deckle edge
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Beads or other fall embellishments

To create these beautiful candleholders, begin by cutting a piece of decorative scrapbook paper and trimming the edge with deckle edge scissors.  Tape the paper around the top edge of a small hurricane, using double-sided tape.

Next, add a length of decorative ribbon below the decorative paper. Secure the ribbon in a few places, onto the glass, with double sided tape.  Add a dab of hot glue to attach the ribbon ends together.

Continue layering your decorative ribbon onto the hurricanes, alternating patterns, textures and colors.  Secure the ends with hot glue.

To create more depth, layer narrower ribbons on top of wider ribbons.  I placed some of my sheer ribbons in the middle of the hurricane so that when a candle is lit, the candle glow would really come through.

So that my table display would really be dynamic, I created three different size Ribbon Wrap Candleholders.  I really like the little one and might just make a few more to use at each place setting for Thanksgiving dinner.

To add a bit more detail to your candleholders, you can embellish them with miniature plastic leaves, buttons, or even some glitter.  I decided to hot glue two different styles of round beads on top of the ribbon.

When I was all done, I created a beautiful Fall centerpiece for my dining room table.  I added fall flowers, leaves and pumpkins along side my Ribbon Wrapped Candleholders.  I just love the way it turned out.

Fall is just around the corner.  I hope you’re inspired to create something beautiful.  Happy Fall Ya’ll!
