Makeover a Jar Candle with Mod Podge and Scrapbook Paper

Today we are making over a jar candle with extra bits of scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.  The little charm is one of our metal pendant blanks for Mod Podge and the paper is one of our designs too. It is really easy to alter a candle and they make awesome gifts!

First you need to loose the label on the candle by either peeling it off or soaking it off. Next you will need to trim your paper to fit around the jar.  Add a little extra to the end for overlapping.  Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the paper and position onto the candle.  Smooth with your fingers and apply a top-coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.
