I just saw these cute and quirky striped candles at Anthropologie and thought, I could make those! This look for less is super easy and inexpensive. Use any candles you like! Some of the ones I painted are thrifted!


What you need



How to make it

Simply tape off your candle to make any size stripes you'd like. Paint each exposed area - you will probably need 2 coats of paint. Once the paint is dry, remove your tape and display your candles!

Tips

  1. Cut your painter's tape into skinny strips.

  2. Don't apply painter's tape over a painted portion of the candle - the paint will peel off

  3. If you have a little bleed through, you can easily scratch off the rough edge with your finger nail or any small sharp object.

  4. Have fun with your color combinations!

The Anthropologie candles cost $36 for a set of 4 tapers. Because I already had the acrylic paint, I only spent $2 on 4 thrifted tapers! With Valentine's Day around the corner, these candles would make sweet but chic décor for a table or mantle! If you make your own striped candle's, make sure to tag me @therurallegend!
