How to Make Pillar Candles with Christmas Printables

Step One: Print Out Your FREE Printables

In case you are unfamiliar with printing printables; I have an entire blog post full of instructions for you HERE Below.

For this particular project I decided to print out my images onto brown kraft paper to create a “wrap” for my Dollar Tree pillar candles. You can feed the brown kraft paper directly through your printer or follow my steps below instead.

Cut out the kraft paper to your desired print size. Mine happened to be the same size as my Cricut Joy mat so I used it as a guide! Approximately 7″x5″.

Then tape it to the middle of a plain 8.5″ x 11″ piece of printer paper to feed it through the printer and remove it from the plain white paper when complete. See below.

Step Two: Wrap Your Pillar Candles

Take your fresh printable printouts and wrap them around your pillar candles. I chose to use various colors of Dollar Tree pillar candles.

White pillar candles are the most popular and typically are available all year round. It’s Christmas time so I was able to find a Green pillar candle and a Red pillar candle, too!

Step Three: Add Embellishments

Once your candles are wrapped, the fun begins. Get creative and add your favorite embellishments to these candles. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • ribbon
  • faux greenery
  • bling
  • twine
  • scrap fabric
  • jingle bells
  • baby pinecones

You get the idea! The list is endless! Be sure to share below in the comments what you add to your candles!

Step Four: Display Your Candles

Your DIY pillar candles are now ready to be displayed or gifted to a friend or family member.

Here are some places to show off your new candles:

  • mantle
  • tv console
  • side table
  • buffet
  • table centerpiece
  • ottoman tray
