I'm serving another special occasion. Part of the ceremony is the lighting of candles. It has already become a practice in the modern generation to beautify these candles to serve as souvenirs after use.


  • candles
  • scissors
  • assorted ribbons (sizes and color of your choice)
  • hot glue
  • felt gift wrapping paper


  1. Cut felt wrap into 4x4 squares.
  2. Take one and fold diagonally. It will form a triangle.
  3. Fold several times. About 3 to 4 times.
  4. Draw the shape of a petal and cut off the traces.
  5. When you open it, it will look like a flower. This will serve as the drip catcher.
  6. Fold it back and cut lines on its tip. The candles will be inserted here.
  7. Now, get a candle and insert it into the center of the flower where the cuts are made.
  8. Wrap candles with ribbon starting from under/bottom of the flower. Use hot glue to secure.
  9. Wrap with another color if desired.
  10. Take two small sized ribbons.
  11. Put them together and make a tiny bow out of it.
  12. I have here used a glittered smaller ribbon and made another bow.
  13. Stick the glittered bow into the two colored one.
  14. Place them under the flower.
  15. Then it's done.
