I’m happy to share this simple project to add a patriotic touch to your home this 4th of July. This trio of candles would look at home on a shelf, a table, or a mantle too. Where would you put them at your house?
Start with three white candles. Use star stickers on one candle then paint over it with blue paint. (I used a star punch with a sheet of adhesive labels because the stickers I had were slightly too big.) On the other two candles make stripes with painters’ tape or washi tape. I found the washi tape just a bit thinner than my painters’ tape and wanted to fit at least 4 stripes on the candles so that worked well. Paint the two candles with red paint. Let them dry then carefully take off the tape and stickers. You can touch up any mistakes with a small paint brush if you’d like.
A quick note: my mother is concerned that paint on a candle will burn your homes down!!! Please either use these for display only OR get paint from a craft store that is appropriate for this type of project.
