Today I have a fun Christmas candle wrap to share with you. I love how this candle wrap turned out. The ice tipped pine boughs add a bit of shine and elegance to the arrangement.

I found the moving flameless LED candles at Costco. Your local home decor shops probably have something very similar.

Supplies for Christmas Candle wrap

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

Sentiment Circle

  • Stamp the sentiment from Wishes & Wonder stamp set using Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Die-cut 3 circles from Soft Suede cardstock using the circle from North Pole Wonder dies.
  • Adhere 3 Soft Suede Circles together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. TIP: The 3 layers of circles gives the sentiment circle structure.
  • Use North Pole Wonder stitched spikey circle die to die-cut medallion circle from metallic foil paper.
  • Adhere all layers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue: Metallic medallion, Soft Suede 3-ply, and sentiment circle.

Stag

  • Die-cut 3 stags from Soft Suede cardstock using North Pole Wonder dies.
  • Adhere 3 stags together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. TIP: Use a small amount of glue. Tiny dots on antler tips, hooves. and along the edge of the body.

Pine Boughs with ice-tips

  • Die-cut small and medium pine boughs from Mossy Meadow cardstock using Beautiful Boughs dies.
  • Drag boughs through Multipurpose Liquid Glue lightly. TIP: Spread a light layer of glue on a craft mat. Mat will clean up with warm water and a little scrubbing. The alternative is to spread glue on scrap paper and throw it away when done.
  • Press boughs into Ice Stampin’ Glitter (retired SU product). ALTERNATIVE: Retro snowflakes found in the Christmas aisle at your local hobby store, or emboss tips of boughs with silver, or just leave a solid green.

ASSEMBLY

  • Layer elements as shown on a scrap (1″ x 2″) of Soft Suede cardstock .
  • Wrap snowflake embossed strip around the candle and secure with a couple of glue dots to itself. Trim if necessary.
  • Get out your Tear-n-Tape and place 3-4 strips across the back of your ‘cluster’.
  • Place cluster over the seam of the snowflake strip.
  • Create a bow with (3) 10″ lengths of Real Red Braided Trim. TIP: Pull apart to reveal great woven texture.
  • Adhere bow with 4-5 glue dots.
  • No Dimensionals were used in this project! LOL!!

I hope you enjoyed this fun Christmas candle wrap. The same cluster would make a great focal point on a card. I would probably not do as many layers under the stag or sentiment. You will not need the structure aspect that the candle wrap requires. I would definitely use Dimensionals behind the sentiment for a card.
