I just love these holiday candle wraps. They are so simple to make using Cricut Design Space and your Cricut of course. Make a few of them for different holidays and change them out as you need. With the images in Cricut Access you can create all kinds of fun holiday themed candle wraps. Head over to Dollar Tree for some LED pillar candles for a really inexpensive Cricut vinyl craft.

What you will need: How to Make Holiday Candle Wraps using Cricut
- Cricut Access
- Cricut Maker, Explore, Joy, Joy Extra or Venture
- Dollar Tree LED Candles
- Adhesive Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Double sided tape
- Green Cricut Mat
- Standard weeding tools
Step 1: Measure your Candle
I used two sizes of Dollar Tree Pillar LED Candles for this project. They measured 3 3/4″ x 9″ and 4 3/4″ x 9″ so I wanted my design to measure the same. You should measure your candles for the appropriate size.
Step 2: Create A Rectangle
Using the shapes tool on the left menu bar create rectangles measuring 3 3/4″ x 9 3/8 for the small candle and 4 3/4″ x 9 3/8″ for the larger candle. Make them a light color because you will be adding your design.
Step 3: Create your Design
There are a number of designs on Cricut Access that you can just cut out but if you want to create your own design head to the images tab and begin choosing images to add to your rectangle for a holiday feel. I chose simple patterns ut you can add multiple images to create a scene if you like.
Step 4: Weld your Design Only
Highlight just your design and not the rectangle and click the weld button on the bottom of the layers panel so that all of the pieces are the same color.
Step 5: Make It
Make sure you choose the correct material type before cutting. You will be cutting the velum and the vinyl. I used silver and gold permanent vinyl for my project and white velum.
Step 6: Weed the Design
Weed the Design using the Cricut weeding tool.
Step 7: Burnish your Transfer Tape
Cut a piece of transfer tape and burnish it onto your design. You will be transferring the design to the piece of velum.
Step 8: Transfer the Design
Lift the design carefully and place it sticky side up on your work surface. Place the velum on top of the design and turn it over. Burnish the design on the non-sticky side using a scraper tool. Make sure that it is burnished well.
Step 9: Remove the Transfer Tape
Carefully remove the transfer tape from the design.
Step 10: Wrap the Candle
Wrap the candle with the velum and the design securing it with double sided tape.
