DIY This Colourful Candle Decorating Technique For Galentines!

I’m in my taper candle era (for a while) over here, what about you?

Plaid, colourful, plain, twisted – YOU NAME IT – I’m here for it. and, this Galentine’s I’m bringing a creative and FUN DIY activity that will add a touch of charm to your space, party or home decor. 

This simple yet delightful DIY colourful candle decorating technique allows you to upgrade and transform your plain taper candles into unique pieces of art (she’s the momeeeeenttttt). 

Call your besties, get some plain candles and the materials below and let’s get started on this fun Galentine’s crafting adventure. 

Materials Required:


Step one: Select your colours and design 

Let’s start by selecting our sticky wax yarn colours that will complement each other or go for a single monochrome look. 

Some pattern ideas I did and LOVED how they turned out:

– plaid  or checkerboard

– waves

– grid 

– stripes 

Step two: Peel & Stick

You won’t believe how simple this DIY is: unwrap the sticky wax yarn from the packaging and carefully separate each yarn, to stick it directly onto your taper candle, yep – THAT simple. 

Add a tiny bit of pressure to stick the colourful yarn and trim the excess at the end with your scissors.

Isn’t this an adorable activity or a thoughtful Galentine’s day gift?
