Stars and Stripes Candle Wrap

This Sunday is the Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge. Michelle and Jeanie have been kind enough to round up some Crafty, Creative Cricut lovers who share their beat ideas each month with you. Thank you Michelle and Jeanie for being the masterminds of this fun challenge.
The 4th of July theme has me thinking Stars and Stripes which will brighten my decor by day and glow while the fireworks light up the night sky to cap of a fun day of celebrating the USA. 
Do you remember this post on DIY Holiday Candle Wraps for the Winter Holidays? To learn how to make the candle wraps refer to the link above for a tutorial.



This takes literally minutes to make with the Cricut Maker, Red and Blue Cardstock and a couple of candles. (Use battery operated candles for fire safety)
Cut out the stripe design with a tab on one end, and do the same with the stars in both red and blue cardstock. Weed and grab double sided tape to add to the tab.
Place the tape on the tab then wrap the paper designs around the candle. To make the most of the card stock, I filled the 12" X 12" paper with stars and stripes in alternating colors.

Above is a photo of the candle wraps styled in our guest room/craft room. To save on space you can have a few favorite candles, then make candle wraps for a few seasons and holidays. Stash them in a drawer and you have a great way to add decor of the season. #CandleWrap on your https://www.instagram.com/karenrere.dragonflyandlilypads and tag

The paper candle wraps make such a huge change to the candle. That's a great idea to dress up candles anytime of the year.
