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.

  1. 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?

    1. 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.
