Washi Tape Candles

Washi tape is a decorative tape (you can find it in craft stores) that comes in a wide variety of unique colors and designs. For this reason, it can be used for many crafting projects. Washi tape is incredibly useful and fun for a number of reasons. It is extremely fun to decorate with it. From the cover of your journal to your boring pen, colorful washi tape can give anything a fun makeover.

In this DIY project, you will be adding some pizzazz to your candles using washi tape. These candles make cute presents and party favors as well!

Materials: Washi tape, tea light candles, measuring tape - not necessary but useful to have and scissors.

Instructions: Measure out the circumference of the tea light, then cut that same length of tape. Carefully wrap the tape around the outside of the tea light holder until it is completely covered with the tape. If you accidentally get wrinkles in the tape, just lift it off and start over. If you have excess tape then you can fold it over the bottom of the tea light holder so that everything looks uniform and smooth.
