You can easily customize your candles with the wonderful assortment of Scrapbooking Brads. Use the directions below or just design on your own. Add a personal touch to your table with decorated candles.

Single Hole Punch

-First you will need to print out a spreadsheet with ½” size square boxes covering the entire page, or use graph paper, or free hand your design on plain paper.
-Cut the paper to size so it fits the same height as the candle and will wrap one time around.
-Use a Hole Punch to make 1/16” holes in the paper where the lines from the spreadsheet intersect, forming a pattern, or where the lines of your design should be.
- Wrap the paper around the candle and fasten with tape.
-Stick brads through the punched holes in the paper, inserting them ¾ of the way in.
-When you are finished placing all the brads, carefully tear away paper and push the brads the rest of the way in.

This would also look great for a DIY Unity Candle or just as decor or favors.
