candle-692x362Nothing could be simpler than adding a piece of colorful ribbon to a glass jar candle — it’s truly an easy and inexpensive way to dress up a plain candle, and add some romance and ambiance to your wedding space. Personalize a variety of candleholders to match your wedding color scheme for streamlined decorations. You could also apply this same technique to empty glass candleholders and vases — just fill your personalized wedding candles with gems, sand, candles, or flowers for a dressed-up look.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Mini Glass Apothecary Jar Candles
  • Ribbon in Various Colors/Widths
  • Scissors
  • Double-Sided Tape
  • Craft Glue
  • Rubbing Alcohol

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Remove the labels from the jar candles, and apply rubbing alcohol to help dissolve the label’s glue and to clean smudges and sticky residue from the glass.
  2. Cut your ribbon into 8.5”-long pieces.
  3. If you are using two contrasting ribbon colors/widths, attach one ribbon on top of the other using a little craft glue at each end.
  4. Then, wrap a piece of ribbon around every jar and secure it discreetly in the back with double-sided tape.
  5. Finally, use finished ribbon-embellished candles to decorate your reception tables, plus you can place them around your reception area for added ambiance.
