Christmas Candle

Christmas Candle

We get numerous requests from non-crafty visitors to jazz up their candles for the Christmas table. This is one simple way.

What you need

Christmas Ribbon
Store-bought candles

Small pins


Take your Christmas ribbon and tie it around the candle into a wonderful bow. If you find the ribbon keeps slipping you can use a small dress-making pin to secure it by pushing it through the ribbon and into the candle.

Do this under one of the loops so it can not be seen.

The more beautiful your ribbon the more beautiful the finish….Begin by choosing a Christmas ribbon that resonates with the festive ambiance you want to create. The more beautiful and vibrant your ribbon, the more enchanting the final result will be.

Whether you’re using these candles to enhance your home decor or contributing to a festive fundraiser, the joy they bring is undeniable. Share the love by gifting these beautifully adorned candles to friends, family, or anyone in need of a dose of holiday spirit.  They are also great for Christmas fundraising stalls.

If you find the ribbon slipping or want to add an extra layer of security, employ a small dressmaking pin. Slide the pin under one of the loops and gently push it through the ribbon and into the candle. Opt for a spot where the pin will be discreetly hidden, ensuring your candle’s elegance remains the focal point.
