Turn Basic Candles Into A Statement Piece With A Stunning Paper Napkin Hack

0 3

After you have gathered the supplies, use the safety pin to carefully separate the decorative layer of the napkin from the white ones. The number of layers you’ll have to discard depends on the quality of the napkin and if it’s 3-ply or 2. Now, do a dry run and wrap the decorative layer around the candle to ensure it’s big enough to cover its surface. If the napkin is too big for your candle, trim it down to avoid dealing with the extra length later.

Once you’re satisfied, lay down some wax paper (ensure it’s bigger than the candle’s length), place the candle on top, and wrap the napkin (with the decorative side facing outward) around the candle. Now, bunch the wax paper tightly at the back, plug in your heat gun or blow dryer (at the highest setting), and apply heat to the candle. The goal is to fuse the napkin and candle together without melting it. So, don’t apply too much heat. As soon as the wax paper becomes transparent, it’s your cue to move to another area. Continue till you have the entire candle covered before removing the wax paper. Voila! Your decorative candle is ready for display. However, avoid burning them without protection since the fused paper is quite flammable. Place them inside a votive holder (or another thick glass jar) since they’re one of the cheapest (and safest) ways to use candles for gorgeous displays.
