Autumn Blessings Candle Wrap

At you most likely know, I'm mainly a Clean and Simple card making girl, But I do enjoy other crafts as well, including inexpensive home decor items. For today's project I made a fall candle wrap for 50 cent candle holder I bought at Goodwill!

Glass candle holder 
May Arts trims: lace edge burlap, jute twine (red, brown) 
Red mini clothes pin 
Small ball stylus 
Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L®: Dodz adhesive dots, double-sided tape

Step 1: Die-cut leaf shapes from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection cardstock in desired colors using Big Shot die-cutting machine.

Step 2: Flip leaf over; draw vein pattern using stylus and embossing mat.

Step 3: Flip leaf back over; sand lightly using Dust Buddy and Sand It Gadget.

Step 4: Sponge with brown ink and sponge dauber as desired. Continue in the same manner for all leaves.

Step 5: Wrap burlap around candle holder securing along ends. Note: Attaching at ends only allows for easy removal and season changing of wrap.

Step 6: Wrap with twine tying in a knot where burlap overlaps.

Step 7: Stamp sentiment onto kraft mini tag.

Step 8: Using adhesive dots, attach leaves as desired covering overlapping ends of burlap.

Step 9: Attach tag using mini clothes pin.

Fill with your desired filler and there you have it!
