We recommend using a battery operated candle as they can be a little safer but still provide a nice glimmer of light. However, you don’t really need a candle at all if you just want to add some festive decor to your celebration, since these candle holders stand out all on their own!
What You’ll Need:
- Glass candle holders with ridges
- Red, white and blue washi tape
- Sharp craft knife
Firstly, begin by placing stripes of blue washi tape onto the side of a glass candle holder, lining it up to the edge of one of the ridges. Use a sharp knife to cut the washi tape down to the space between the ridges.
Repeat this step every third space all the way around the candle holder.
Secondly, repeat with with red washi tape, placing stripes in the spaces after every blue line.
Finally, repeat everything all over again with white washi tape, filling in the remaining spaces.
