How to make your boring candles fun for the summer, a lemon decor do it yourself craft! I love those small candles from the Dollar Tree, but I decided to put a twist on them. Using left over napkins and some jute string, I created the cutest decorative candles!

For this DIY, I made two seperate candles that were intended to be a pair together. I am going to start by showing you how I created Candle 1 and then go on to Candle 2. That way, you can decide which candle you’d like to make or know how to create the pair if you so wish. Because the materials are similar for both candles, making both should not be time consuming! Due to the quick nature of this project, you could make quite a few candles.
Similarly, if you make many candles, you could use them in a variety of ways. These include but are not limited to gifts, decor, and useable items! Since some of the materials used to make these decorative candles are flammable, you’ll want to look up different ways to make them safe to light. Once you’ve come up with a way to make it non-flammable (like buying a glass container that won’t heat up) you can buy different scented candles so your home can be fragrant.
