There is one sure fire way to make me buy something. Make it in gold. I will buy it. Every single time. Ordinary stuff becomes awesome when it turns gold. Just like death and taxes – this is just a fact of life. Gold makes everything better. Looks like the folks at Cricut caught wind of this strategy and they are wooing me in with their new gold vinyl. And it worked. I’ve got some in my possession and I’m using it to make beautiful things. Like this candle wrap – which is super easy to do.

Since the Cricut Explore will do all the work for you, you don’t need many supplies for this project. The candle topper cut out is jsut sa little something that I designed to fit over the top of my handmade candle. If you have die cutting supplies, you may be able to create something similar. If not, I’ve got a download for you!

Gold Vinyl Candle Wrap with Cricut Explore | Damask LoveGold Vinyl Candle Wrap with Cricut Explore | Damask Love{1} Select a pattern or background from Design Space that you like and cut it out. I chose the “Square Design Pattern Overlay.” To create a wrap for your candle, you’ll want to “weld” together the pattern overall to create a continuous pattern. My candle jar measures 12″ in circumference, so I created two 5 1/2″ patterns, which together would cover the entirety of the candle jar.

{2} Once the pattern is cut place the vinyl transfer tape over the pattern and rub so that the tape adheres to the gold vinyl

{3}  Peel up the transfer tape. The gold vinyl pattern will stick to the tape leaving the adhesive side of the gold vinyl exposed and ready to be placed directly onto the glass candle jar.

{4} Use the red lines on the transfer tape to evenly apply the gold vinyl pattern to the glass jar. Rub the surface to make sure the gold vinyl sticks well.

{5} Peel back the transfer tape and your pretty gold vinyl pattern will be stuck to the candle jar.

And if you’re curious about making candles, you will love just how easy it is! All you need is a microwave and a few specialty candle making supplies. I am no stranger to candle making! It’s a go-to gift project around here. A  few years ago I invested in candle making supplies from Brambleberry and I haven’t had to restock since! They last a really long time. Visit THIS blog post for some visuals on making your own candles.
