That makes our styles very different - and tonight - my mom came to help get Bug to and from dance and with her she brought supplies and a vision for this Fab-u-lous Fall Candle.
While my mom is creative, her talents are more with knitting and sewing, not general crafting... so she knew I could handle what she wanted a lot quicker and with a lot fewer glue gun burns than she could.
Really, this project was insanely simple. From start to finish was all of about 10 minutes, including taking pictures along the way.
Here is what we started with:
- Wire edge ribbon
- Jar candle
- Glue gun
Step 2 - Keeping the end of the wire that you just secured firmly in place, push the ribbon towards the secured end so that the ribbon gathers. (That seems like the single most complicated way to describe something very simple but I just can't find the "easy" words.)
Step 3 - Wrap the gathered ribbon around the wire you just pulled to form a flower and repeat over and over and over again.
The smaller flowers pictured above were created by first cutting the ribbon in half and then following the same steps as above.
Step 4 - Hot glue the flowers to the jar candle.
And repeat... Until you have a Fab-U-Lous Fall Candle.
