I made some of these a while ago for a little event, but then decided to re-use them at home as well as try some new variations. They're a fun way to use up things you may already have at home.
- Translucent paper
- tape (I used some Japanese masking tape)
- measuring tape (optional)
See? It's a short list! Even grabbing a sheet of vellum won't set you back too far, so see if you can find a color that suits your fancy. I already had some green at home, so I just used that.
Measure the circumference of your candle holder and tear a piece of tape that length + a bit extra to overlap. Cut a strip of translucent paper the same width and attach to tape and then wrap around candle holder. Finished!
I trimmed the tops of some to look like grass for the little spring event I helped decorate, but I also used some random shapes cut from the translucent paper to try some other variations. One looks a little like a crown and the other reminds me of an aloe plant, ha. I found overlapping little bits of translucent paper to be kind of fun, so see what you come up with!
* Caution: paper + open flame = could be scary, so use good judgement here!
