Designing Two for One Candles

Category Decorations
By painting two different designs on the opposite sides of round pillar candles, one candle can be used for two separate occasions. These are fun to make and less costly than buying multiple candles for different holidays or events.

Decor for your home does not have to be costly! With a purchase from the dollar store and craft paint you can personalize your candles and cut the cost from those higher retailers by more than half! I wanted to decorate a single set of candles with 2 looks that can be used for multiple occasions. Here's how!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 2


  • 2 candles
  • craft paint
  • brushes
  • paper plate
  • embellishments (optional)


  1. On one side of your candle, using craft paints and a brush, make a snowman face. Allow to dry.
  2. On the opposite side, make 5 red colored petals, in between the petals, make small green leaves. To finish add yellow dots in the center. This will give you a poinsettia look. Set aside to dry.
