Sat, 19 Nov 2016 15:30:00




 This is a very easy way to make an original & striking candle centrepiece


Preparation

Choose a nail head with prong backs & diamante set in metal claw backs.
Select your candle & satin ribbons in complimentary colours.





Guide












  1. Using the candle as the base, simply push the prongs of the nail heads and claws of the diamante securely into the wax
  2. Following the top rim of the candle create one row of alternating nail heads & diamante
  3. 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
  4. Repeat the above step using 7mm ribbon in an alternating complimentary colour, making sure that the seams line up
  5. Repeat step 2 following the edge of the ribbon to achieve a straight line
  6. Add one row of square nail heads leaving a small gap between each
  7. Repeat step 4 using the edge of the square nail heads as a line guide
  8. 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
  9. 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.
