{DIY: D is for Damask Candle Wrap}

Picture 1
I recently came across the Fussy Designer blog for a graphic designer who designed a custom damask wrap to go around candle holders. Here are 3 templates you can download and print on vellum to adhere to your votives.

  • Vellum Paper (compatible for the type of printer you have - ink jet or laser)
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Scissors
  • Glass Candle Holder
Note: Votives should be purchased from Michaels, it's a pack of 12, grayish box with a picture of candles on the side of it.

Her vellum was purchased from Staples, make sure you pull the vellum tight around the votive and secure with double stick tape.


Embellish your divine damask wrap by adding colored ribbon or rhinestones 
for a little pop and pizzaz.

The template has colors of orange and brown.  If you would like to create this DIY
project in black, simply print the template and photocopy it on a black / white copier.

Don't want to use vellum paper?  Check out the fabric section at your local
hobby or craft store.  Then use the provided template to cut out your piece.

Just thought I'd give myself credit.

Mrs. Designher said...

Oh my gosh, absolutely!! You deserve credit. They are BEAUTIFUL :)

Yay! Thank you! They look great lined up on the top of my oven LOL!

I also have a MS Word template that has 4 black and white designs. I've already emailed them to lots of people; maybe we can work it so that it also can be easily downloaded?

I got the basic (and wonderful) directions for this project from under "Lovin' the DIY".

Mrs. Designher said...

They do look super cool!! I want to make some myself because I've received a ton of awesome feedback from this post, so mad props to you!!

Great idea for the template as well, but I don't know how to make it download like the one in the link above. If you figure it out, let me know and I'll definitely be happy to add the link.

Thanks for reading our blog. :) How did you find us?

I came across it via, one of the brides on there mentioned this site. Then I told the Project Wedding girls about it and they were all excited. So, needless to say, you'll probably have a bit more traffic now! Well deserved, you have an awesome site here! :)

Mrs. Designher said...

They are so cute!
I was wondering is there any way for me to get the exact templates that are used in the picture of the 4 finished candle holders? Those prints are so great together!

Thanks, Carissa
