Hello - thank you for coming by. Today's project is featuring those really cool electronic candles. I have to admit, the only ones I had ever paid any attention to were the little tealights. But I saw these pillar candles on tv and thought they were pretty neat, but pretty expensive. But the commercial that I saw for them also came with these transparent sheets to decorate the candles and I thought I could do that, too.
I found these pillars at Michaels and they were on sale plus I had a coupon that I could use on sale items, too, so they were way inexpensive. I found some great files on the Silhouette Online store that helped me with my idea.
I cut the images using my Cameo and white vinyl. I measured the protective sheet that was already wrapped around the candles (but desperately ugly) and then cut clean transparency. I then cut a piece of scratch paper the same length, which ended being something like 10 5/8" and wasn't about to figure out with measurements what the middle was. So I folded it in half and marked up the crease with black marker. Then smooth that flat to place the piece of transparency and added the cut piece eye-balling the center of the image. Then just wrap the transparency around the candle and tape it in the back.
I can dress these candles up all year to fit the occasion or season! Very inexpensively, too.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
