Christmas: Peppermint Gnome Candles


Stash busting meets Christmas! I always have a few of these blank prayer candles from The Dollar Tree in my stash and while grabbing for something else I saw them and thought of a quick and easy idea. This is a fast an easy project that could work as a hostess gift or an easy addition to your decor!

  • Dollar Tree Glass Candles
  • Scrapbook Paper (I used papers from the White Christmas Stack at Michaels I used for my cards)
  • Vinyl (Oracal Red)
  • Image (Creative Fabrica)
  • Ribbon
  • Mini Ornaments
I didn't even take pictures while doing it. If you don't have a cutting machine, you could easily do this with stickers. 

These are the plain candles from Dollar Tree. Similar ones are also sold at many grocery stores. Measure your scrapbook paper for circumference and height, cut. I cut mine 7.25 x 7.25. Tear the top of the paper. Apply to your candle using double sided tape or you can use Mod Podge. 

In your cutting machine's software ( I used my Cricut Explore 2 and Design Spance ) size your images accordingly, cut, weed. Apply transfer tape and then center and apply to your candles. 

To finish, wrap coordinating ribbon with a charm or mini ornament and DONE! Easy Peasy! I like the subtlety of the print on the paper behind the outline of the Gnome image. Easy additions to my hot chocolate bar for which it looks like I  need to make more hot chocolate mix and marshmallows since a certain tall elf who lives here has been enjoying!
