For me, a big part of “DIY” is taking something simple and embellishing it to fit my own unique style. For the most part, I’m not satisfied with store bought items and normally always tweak a little something here or there to make it more “me”. Which is exactly what I did with these gorgeous, DIY Scalloped Candle Wraps. Using our free SVG cut files, you can embellish literally any candle using any type of paper, in one simple step with your trusty Cricut Explore Air. My candles are from Pier One, but these wraps can be cut down to fit any candle whether they’re from the Dollar Store or Pottery Barn… you can even use these scallop wraps on the outside of glass hurricanes!

SUPPLIES:

  • Cricut Explore Air
  • 8.5″ x 11″ Vellum (or paper of your choice)

Import Into Design Space

Download our free SVG files at the end of the post and upload them into Cricut Design Space. I have three sizes that are specifically designed to fit the typical sizes of pillar candles:

Short: 2.75″ x 10″
Medium: 4.5″ x 10″
Tall: 6.5″ x 10″

Paper Setting

My advice for this specific project is to use a fresh cutting mat (not one that has seen better days, you know what I mean), a semi-fresh blade and find the custom setting for the exact paper you are going to use. Those 3 elements will ensure a successful cut. Here I chose “vellum”.

Cut The Designs

Once you’ve got your mat and cut setting dialed in, put the mat in your Cricut, press GO and watch it do it’s magic!

Remove Very Carefully

Cardstock or paper is totally no big deal, but vellum is incredibly delicate. If you use vellum for this project like I did, you’re going to need to remove the cut design from the mat carefully, and with patience. Once removed, use the scrapper tool to carefully remove all the scraps left behind on your mat. There will be so much of it that you could literally turn it into confetti!

Apply To Your Candle

Apply your favorite adhesive along the edge of the design that has the lip. Wrap around your candle and secure – that’s all there is to it!
