I have a Dollar Store within walking distance from my home, and while running some errands the other day I decided to stop in and see what I could find in their holiday section.

Have you been to the Dollar Store recently?! The selection is amazing! In just a few minutes I was able to find some items to make this pretty and sparkly Christmas candle — and for just a few dollars! I bought supplies to make six candles for a total of $9, resulting in a cost per candle of $1.50 (plus tax).

I’m so thrilled with how they turned out and love these DIY Christmas candles for hostess gifts, placing around my home, or decorating a holiday mantel display. The possibilities are endless and they’re so easy to make.

Step one: Unroll the mesh ribbon to fit around your candle (and overlap slightly); cut.

Step two: Place a thin line of hot glue on your candle and press the mesh ribbon into it, being careful not to burn your hands/fingers.

I used a silicone tool to press my ribbon into the candle, and there are also silicone finger cots available that can help prevent burns!

Step three: Place a dab of hot glue on the seam formed by the mesh ribbon and press the end of your sequin trim down. Continue placing dots of hot glue on the mesh ribbon and pressing the sequin trim down until the candle is fully wrapped. Repeat at the bottom.

Step four: Trim the sequin trim with scissors. The reason I don’t do this at the beginning is that sequins can fall off before the trim is secured with hot glue! So I wait until the end.

Step five: Cut the string off a ribbon ornament and hot glue it to the front of your candle. You’re done!
