Watch my short video tutorial below, where you’ll find my super-easy way to attach ribbon to glass candles!  (And after you watch the video, scroll on down this page for details on supplies!)

Supplies!

The candles used in the video are basic glass pillar candles, sometimes called Prayer Candles or Devotional Candles. You can find them at the dollar store (where I found mine) and at many grocery stores.

Glass Pillar Candles are great to decorate for special occasions including weddings! #ribbonHOA

You can also find the candles on Amazon. Here’s a link to an example of what you can find there:

These candles are fantastic to use for weddings or any special occasion where you want a long-burning candle. (And the decorating possibilities are endless!)
