Poinsettia Candle Wreath


Die-cut in scrap cardstock (it will be covered) 2x rounded Sunlight Window die together with Circle Basics Large Die 3 1/2" to create rings (the size of the hole can vary depending on your candle - candle shown is 3" diameter 7" high). With a paper trimmer cut strips 1 3/4" wide and score 1/2" full length of each side. With scissors snip down to the score line the full length of the strip both sides to create little tabs approx 1/2" (tip: snip straight first to the score line, then at an angle at the cut to one side or both sides of the tab, this will help the tabs fold over each other when glued) (photos will be on my blog). Create a tab at the end of a strip if you need to adhere more than one strip together to get the length required. With the strips as one long length apply a generous amount of dries clear around the outer of the ring and adhere the tabs inward, overlap the strip and trim off to length required to complete the circle. Once dry, repeat with the other ring (as the inner circle is open you can get your hands inside to press the tabs firmly) allow to dry. Apply double sided tape to the solid side of the ring and wrap ribbon/sacking around to make a complete donut.
