Quick Fix: Five Minute DIY Plaid and Paint Dipped Votive Candles

Five Minute Votive Candle Holders

The weather has turned and fall is here so I am starting to add some fall decor to my home. In my opinion, the easiest way to add in touches of seasonal decor is with candles. Here is a five minute quick fix using paper and balloons to transform votive candles for your fall decor.   

 

 

 This project is so easy you more than likely have most of the things you need on hand.

I love fall colors but I gravitate to a more "cool" color palette. I decided to go with blues and blacks and mix in some warmer colors as accents. I also love plaid and my favorite plaid is buffalo check.

Here is what you need:

 

  • Scrapbook paper (most craft stores have plaid options..especially in the fall seasons)
  • Scissors
  • Votive Candles
  • Scissors
  • Double sided sticky tape
  • ruler
  • latex balloons (not pictured above)

I loved the dipped paint votive look but I didn't really want to hassle with paint. My quick fix for the paint dipped look are balloons!

Measure the height of your candle and using a ruler measure you paper. Make sure your measurement is a little less than the height of the candle. Paper and fire don't really mix so make sure a little glass shows at the top.

Note: The easiest votive candles to wrap with paper are cylinder shaped votives. The cone shaped votives are a little trickier so I reserved those for the "dipped paint look".

Step

Add double sided sticky tape along the edges and end of your paper.

It is hard to see the tape in the photo but I placed tape along the entire edge.

Cut the top and bottom off your balloon.

Wrap around the bottom of your votive and you are done. I don't fully pull the balloon around the side of the votive. The balloon will naturally wrap around the bottom edge. The finished product looks like you dipped your glass votive in paint.

This DIY project took me less than five minutes per candle. What I love is the votive candles will be really easy to change up when Christmas comes around.
