This is a very easy way to make an original & striking candle centrepiece
Choose a nail head with prong backs & diamante set in metal claw backs.
Select your candle & satin ribbons in complimentary colours.
Using the candle as the base, simply push the prongs of the nail heads and claws of the diamante securely into the wax
Following the top rim of the candle create one row of alternating nail heads & diamante
Measure a strip of 15mm satin ribbon around your ribbon. Apply double sided tape to the reverse & cut the ribbon to length adding a 1cm overlap for the join
Repeat the above step using 7mm ribbon in an alternating complimentary colour, making sure that the seams line up
Repeat step 2 following the edge of the ribbon to achieve a straight line
Add one row of square nail heads leaving a small gap between each
Repeat step 4 using the edge of the square nail heads as a line guide
Starting from the bottom of the candle, repeat steps 1-7 again until you have two equally sized/spaced blocks of embellishment with a large gap in the centre
Select a wide satin ribbon and tie in a decorative bow. Snip the ends into points using a sharp pair of scissors
Tip: If you wish to create a distinct pattern, score the design into the wax with a pin before you start.
