I don’t know about you guys but the Summer is crazy busy and when you throw in organizing a 4th of July party, I’m usually running around like a chicken with her head off! When there’s a time constraint and a party is looming, the first thing that usually gets crossed off the “to do” list are cute little table decorations. Luckily, I’m here to show that you don’t have to choose between finishing the food and decorating for your party. These easy DIY Fourth of July candle wraps come together in minutes and will look super cute on your patriotic tables!
Another great thing about this project is that with only three supplies you can make up to 8 DIY Fourth of July candle wraps. I can’t think of an easier and more inexpensive way to decorate tables for a patriotic party! Just make sure to use glass votive holders if you’re not going to use battery-operated candles. Wouldn’t want your paper wraps to go up in flames!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Fourth of July Candle Wraps:
- Paper Birch Bark Garland.
- Starry Night Decorative Edge Punch.
- Double Sided Hercules Tape.
- Wood USA Cutouts.
- LED Votives.
Step One. Cut an 8″ strip of paper garland and use your paper punch to cut out star shapes on the edges. You can also create different star patterns by folding the garland either vertically or horizontally and punching on the fold (as seen in the examples below.)
Step Three. (optional) Before you tape shut, you can embellish the center of the candle wrap with ribbon and/or wood cutouts stuck in place with the strong double-sided tape. Or just leave it plain, looks great either way!
And that’s it! I wasn’t kidding when I said these DIY Fourth of July candle wraps were super easy, right? Once all the wraps are made, all you have to do is slip them over small battery-operated tea lights and place on your table to enjoy by all.
