I’m sure you can tell by now that I love candles. I love making them and they make easy gifts. But, most candle jars are boring and have ugly labels on them so today we’re going to change that with this fun candle idea. We’re going to add a special message to our favorite candles and turn them into fabulous gifts for all our favorite people. And, we’re using gold vinyl because everything looks better in gold.
- Jar Candles
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Gold Vinyl
- Vinyl Cutting Machine (Cricut or Silhouette)
- SVG Files – Shine Bright and Smile, Sparkle, Shine
- Transfer Tape
- Cricut Basic Tool Set
First, remove the label from the jar candle using soap and water. Then, clean the outside of the jar with rubbing alcohol and make sure it is completely dry.
Decide what inspirational quotes you want to add to your candles. Use your handy dandy electronic cutting machine to cut out your vinyl quotes. Download the FREE SVG files HERE or create your own.
Weed the vinyl from around words and then adhere quotes to your jar candle using transfer tape.
That’s it! How easy was that? In three easy steps you’ve added a special message to your favorite candle. And, you’ve turned a simple candle into a fabulous gift. How awesome is that? This is my kind of craft project!
