DIY Nautical Seashell Candle Wrap

Seashells are always an easy decor go-to, but they're especially hot for summer 2016. Add them to glass bowls with sand for a simple vignette or scatter them on a hammered, steel tray with small pieces of driftwood for a rustic twist. Better yet, try this wrap with flameless candles to really step up your decor game. In the day these candles are a breath of fresh, sea air and at night a warming glow, like a seaside bonfire. Pst! There's a coupon code below...

Recommended Supplies:

  • Wide-diameter Candle Impressions LED candles; buy 3 for $22.72 here and get 30% off with coupon code SEASHELL30
  • Seashells, especially starfish (but please never take live creatures from their habitat!)
  • Burlap 
  • Raffia
  • Tape or stapler (to fasten raffia halos)
  • Beach-themed tray optional
The final look is so professional, no one will believe it's a DIY project. There's a number of ways you can decorate with this craft, including:
  • Bathrooms for a high-end nightlight 
  • Coffee table vignettes, especially if on a larger, round tray
  • Dinner table centerpiece 
  • Housewarming/hostess gift (it's a great way to be invited back to a friend's beach house!) 

Candle Impressions Flameless Candles are the perfect tool for crafters. Since the candles are flameless, you don't have to worry about the burlap or raffia catching fire or wax melting onto your cherished shell collection. This concept works for other items too, including pinecones, dried flowers, and even glitzy costume broaches for something that shine (try using lace instead of burlap).

DIY Paper Flower Centerpiece

This week we were so inspired by the floral beauty of spring and the romance of wedding season that we brought those two delights together for a blog post. In celebration of new life and new beginnings, we made a gorgeous candle craft: a DIY Paper Flower LED Candle Centerpiece.

One of the biggest perks of using Candle Impressions LED candles is the ability to decorate them with virtually any material, including flammable paper. In this DIY tutorial we contrast the rich and smooth texture of our real wax LED flameless candles with soft paper flowers and the alluring lustre of white pearls. The results are a gorgeous centerpiece, suitable for weddings, bridal showers, engagement parties and feminine spring decor. 
Watch the below video to learn how to make this beautiful project in less than 20 minutes. 
Materials Used: 
  • Candle Impressions Flameless LED Candles; order online here
  • Pre-Cut Paper Flowers (we found ours at Michaels)
  • Faux-pearl earrings (example here)
Thank you for reading! Please let us know what you think of our new video blog format the this pretty little craft. Please remember this craft is intended for adults only and is not suitable for young children due to choking hazards.
