PAPER & ROPE COVERED CANDLE FOR A NAUTICAL LOOK


Hello friends, I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

A few weeks ago we had a garage sale, and during that time I went through every drawer, cupboard, storage bin, and closet, etc. to gather items I no longer wanted to sell at the sale. I found this old red candle, never lit, and decided to keep it because I like to display candles from time to time. But the red just wasn't doing it for me. Also around that time I saw this anchor paper at Michaels, and an idea struck: to cover the candle with that beautiful nautical pattern (which I'm totally obsessed with by the way) and rope!

I may never light it, but I like it 10 times better. You can also achieve this look with my tutorial below.
