French Inspired Candles

I have been totally inspired by vintage French images recently! After I graduated with my masters from Michigan State I went backpacking across Europe with my friend Kelly. It was such an adventure. One of my favorite stops was the south of France; the romance, glamour and history of this country were so apparent.

I wanted to tie these images into a project for the house. I really want some fabulous burlap pillows with French images and phrases from Etsy, but while I decide which pillows I want I made these French inspired candles below!

This project was super easy. I purchased a few candles of varying heights to use as the base. Then I scoured the internet for vintage French images that I could print. I found most of my images at this website called the Graphics Fairy.


After printing my images I measured the height and width of the candle and cut the paper images. I had to tape one side of the paper to the candle and I hot glued the other side. I finished off each candle with a brown satin ribbon. These candles are sitting on this amazing French tray I found at our local antique store!
