Decoupage Dollar Tree Candles with Napkins

Makeover candles with just a few materials from the dollar store! These Dollar Tree candles can be customized for any occasion.

Skills Required: Beginner. You don’t need to have a ton of Mod Podge experience to make these, but I do recommend having prior craft experiencing because the napkins are fragile.

Decoupage Dollar Tree Candles with Napkins

I’m very excited to share these flameless decoupage candles today! I love lighting candles, but I must confess that I have been known to forget about them from time to time.

Coming home after running errands to a lit candle that I have totally forgotten about is definitely not the best case scenario!

I haven’t invested in flameless candles yet, but when I saw that the Dollar Tree had some, I had to grab a few. With a little Mod Podge and decorative napkins, I turned them into something super cute.

I found the napkins at the Dollar Tree also which made these decoupage candles very inexpensive.

Since the napkins are so thin, the light from the LED candle still shines through creating a beautiful effect. You can customize these candles for different occasions.

Make some with party napkins for a birthday party or maybe some fall napkins for Thanksgiving decor. The possibilities are endless!

Next, unfold and separate your napkin so that it’s just one-ply. Wrap it around the candle, smoothing it out. There will be some wrinkles but that’s ok! Brush on another layer of Mod Podge over the napkin.

Can someone point me in the direction of pretty napkins? Party city and Walmart napkins are ugly and stale looking. I would love to do the napkin projects. Thanks
