DIY Handmade Gifts :: Washi Tape Candles

washi tape candles diy gift

Here’s my second gift idea: washi tape decorated candles. This gift only takes a couple of minutes to make and is so cute and festive. I used only metallic silver and gold tape, however, you could use any color or pattern.

You can give one candle or a few. One candle would look lovely on a small, circular glass candle dish.

    I am reading your blog like a book after stumbling upon it…somehow! LOL Anyway, can these candles be burned with the washi tape on them, or are they only for decoration?

    • Amy, thanks for taking the time and reading my blog! :) I burned the candles with the washi tape on them. The heat caused the tape to wrinkle slightly. I just had to cut/tear the tape around the edges as the candle burned so the tape would not burn. If you do that, they are just fine.
