Halloween candle cover made with scrapbook paper

This candle cover is made from scrapbook paper and is a very quick and easy project.  It’s a great way to cover up an old pillar candle but you must use battery operated tea lights with this.


  • one piece of scrapbook paper
  • one pillar candle

Step 1.

Measure the size you will need by placing your candle on the paper. I used a paper that had stacking jack o lanterns on it but there are many patterns to choose from.

Step 2.

Cut around the jack o lantern and cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Step 3.

Wrap paper around candle and put a thin strip of glue along edge and then pull the other edge around on top of the glue.  Use a rubber band to secure it while it dries.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
