How to Decorate Ordinary Candles
When you decorate ordinary candles, you transform something that is plain into something that is a conversation piece. The candles used in this project were purchased at a local dollar store, which keeps the cost to a minimum. You can use any kind of candle, including votives, tapers, and pillars. Illuminate your creative side with these easy to implement decorating ideas.
Almost anything can be used to decorate ordinary candles. If you have a young child at home, you probably have a good supply of glitter glue and beads. If you sew, you can raid your stock of fabric scraps, ribbons, buttons, bias tape and straight pins. Get it all out and make a collection on your craft table. You never know which pieces will inspire you.

- 5Use beads and pins. Use large beads to decorate a pillar candle. Insert a pin into the bead, and pierce the candle with it.
- 7Tie it with a ribbon.
You can decorate candles with ribbons in the colors of your favorite sports team, in holiday colors, or in boy or girl colors to celebrate the birth of a new baby. Decorated candles make thoughtful gifts for birthdays and special occasions.
For Decorative Purposes Only
Keep in mind that decorated candles are for decorative purposes only. The materials you use to embellish the candles may not be flame resistant, so they shouldn't be used for burning.
