When I’m decorating a space, one thing I must have is candles. It’s the easiest way to add a warm, cozy feeling to a room and is super inexpensive too. Today’s project is so simple and will give a gorgeous glow to your space in under 5 minutes with just 4 supplies! These Paper-Wrapped Candle Holders are the perfect quick and easy DIY project!
Confession time: I’m totally that person that changes out candles scents with each season! Pumpkin and cinnamon in the fall, sugar cookies and pine trees in the winter, rain and fresh linen in the spring, and beaches and lemon in the summer… You can never have too many candle scents! Do you feel the same way?
Here’s how quick and easy these little paper-wrapped candle holders are to make:
- glass vase/candle holder
- vellum paper (found with scrapbook papers)
- double-sided tape
Step 1: Cut strips of paper to fit around your candle holder. Vellum paper is slightly transparent which allows the candle light to easily shine through. Look for printed or patterned vellum paper for added interest to your candle holders. I used this Tattered Angels paper for mine.
Step 2: Wrap the paper around the candle holder and secure with tape.
Step 3: Add a candle to the holder.
Step 4: Light the candle and enjoy the ambiance!
I hope you enjoy this simple, little project in your home! I’m curious, do you like seeing smaller decor projects like this or do you prefer the bigger, more creative ones? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Liz, this is a really cute and easy project that I feel I could master… I am not crafty at all, so smaller projects always appeal to me. I do love reading about larger projects though from time to time. I would happily view them and dream, but probably wouldn’t attempt them. I love changing my scents out with the season too:)
Thanks, Heather! I love the feedback! I’ll keep some smaller projects coming your way. 🙂
What a great idea! So simple, but so pretty! I’m so with you about the seasonal candles too…. I’m anxious to bring out all the warm scented candles for fall already!!!!
Me too, girl! Pumpkin, cinnamon, apples… I love them all! Thanks for stopping by!
I totally change my candle scents with the season! As for type of projects, small, easy ones mixed in with the bigger, more involved ones are great. I think you have a good mix.
Thank you for the feedback, Cecilia! I really appreciate it!
I like both small and large projects. The smaller ones are nice and something I know I can and will do! While the larger ones are something to store away for later when I might do it! I love the vellum on this project! I switch out my fragrances often but am finding that I don’t burn candles too often anymore. I’m kind of a Scentsy girl now. With 3 boys and a dog the thought of an open flame is a little scary when no one seems to pay attention to what they’re doing. 🙂
Haha, I can totally relate, Amber! I have to be very careful where I choose to place my candles around the house now. 🙂
