Decorating for the Artistic Soul

St. Patrick’s Day Candles

Posted on: March 3, 2011

Nothing creates a festive mood like a room full of shimmering candles. Even if you only have room for a few candles, you can “green up” your St. Patrick’s Day décor with some simple pillar candles adorned with ribbons. This is an easy project to do and you may have the supplies on hand already. If not, you can acquire them affordably.

First, gather up any pillar candles you already have. You’ll want white ones and green ones. Height and width doesn’t matter. If you don’t have any, they can be found at most stores like Wal-Mart, Target and Dollar Stores.

Next, select ribbons in colors and patterns that are in keeping with the St. Patrick’s Day theme. Many stores will be carrying seasonal ribbons now. You can choose solid colors like green and white or patterns like shamrocks, leprechauns or checkerboards. If your budget allows, buy some of each. Also pick up some straight pins with white heads.

Using a soft ribbon-type tape measure, determine the circumference of each candle. Cut a strip of ribbon that compliments the candle color to the length of the candle’s circumference. Hold one end in place with your hand and wrap the ribbon around the candle’s center. Use the pins to hold both ends in place on the candle. Line the pin heads up and space them evenly down the ribbon seam to add to the finished look.

When all the ribbons have been attached to the candles, you can set the candles in their places. A nice variety of thickness and heights makes a great display on the center of a table along a mantel or placed around the room in smaller groupings. Wait for your guests to arrive and light the candles for a wonderful touch to your St. Patrick’s Day gathering.
