I’m a BIG candle light lover. I light one each and every single night and love the aromatic aromas and soft glow of a great candle lit in our house. a couple fall candle lights from Michaels because they were having a terrific sale. While I enjoy these fragrances (even though they make me starving!), I’m not in love with the appearance of the candle light jars. The labels are so big and u-g-l-y and the thought of soaking them to get the labels off seem like a great deal of work.That’s when I developed this idea for a simple fall candle holder to conceal those awful labels. Make a Fall Candle Light Holder Out of An Old Sock This may be among the weirdest craft tasks we’ve done
here on the blog site, however I’m in fact quite obsessed with how easy and efficient it is. You’re going to utilize an old sock, sufficed, and put it around the jar to hide the label. The result is a fall candle holder that looks cozy and includes some texture to your house’s decor for the season!Grab An Old Sock Finding a sock was really the hardest part of this project. You’ll desire one that is quite thick and I prefer the look of a cable knit or wool sock for added texture. A routine white sock might not look so quite, so I ‘d avoid utilizing that. I discovered an off-white cable knit and used that for this job(< a href =https://rstyle.me/n/c8sgsfbby8f target =_ blank rel= "nofollow noopener "> these ones on Amazon could work well ). Oh, and make certain it’s tidy too. No one wishes to use a smelly sock when DIY’ing. Bring the top of the sock up over the candle and get it in a place where you desire it. I shimmied my own all the way as much as the top.Cut Off the Foot of the Sock Now make certain you use fabric scissors to cut the foot of the sock off. Believe me, it will be a heck of a lot easier to use material scissors rather than just routine ones. I was able to cut through this thick sock really quickly utilizing mine. And I’m a lefty(and draw at cutting), so that says a lot! And guys … that’s it, you’re done! I told you it was a simple fall craft project.Before & After– Fall Candle Holder I enjoy this basic service to conceal those unsightly candle labels. It took me 2 minutes to finish and I believe it includes so much texture and warmth to our dining room table.
I’m going to keep my eyes peeled at the store for more socks because I think this would look great with a really thick cream sock(almost like a sweatshirt) as a fall candle light holder. While I make sure I’ll continue to buy those beautiful candles from Anthropologie(that cost an arm and a leg!), I believe this is a terrific service for low-cost candle lights with horrible containers. And if you’re seeking to comfortable up your whole house for the fall season, make sure to check out this post from a few years back. It has lots of fantastic ideas!So what do you say? Do you have any old socks that may work for this basic craft project?Casey
