4 Innovative And Simple Ways To Wrap Your Scented Candles

Wrapping the cylindrical presents such as aromatic candles can be confusing. You may end up with a lot of excess paper, which would create a messy look. 

Hence, here are the four methods to wrap your candles: 

METHOD 1: THE FAN METHOD 

This method is most applicable for standing candles. You can follow the below-mentioned step to undergo this process successfully:

  1. Firstly, cut a portion from the gift wrapper that would entirely cover the candle. Then, leave an overlap of ½-inch so it can be pasted shut.
  2. After that, Leave at least two inches of the wrapper on both sides of the two flat terminals. Cut as required because the additional paper would turn the gift look chaotic. To assume how much lengthy paper you need, measure the diameter of the wick, include an inch for overlap, and separate them into two.
  3. Then, tape the round seam and select an end to initiate wrapping. Start with folding one terminal of the paper flat against the bottom-most of the candle and place it properly. Then stick up the wrapper on both sides. 
  4. After that, move an inch down the wrapper and create another pleat that overlaps the first. Continue this method until the entire bottom of the candle is covered. 
  5. Then secure the terminal with tape and continue to do that on the other end of the candle. You can also add a bow or a ribbon if you want.

METHOD 2: THE “CANDY WRAPPER” METHOD 

The name itself signifies that the candle after such wrapping would look like a piece of candy. This method is particularly applicable to a candle that you want to lay on rather than stand up.

  1. Firstly, cut a portion from the gift wrapper that would entirely cover the candle. Then, leave an overlap of ½-inch so it can be pasted shut.
  2. After that, Leave at least two inches of the wrapper on both sides of the two flat terminals. Cut as required because the additional paper would turn the gift look chaotic. To assume how much lengthy paper you need, measure the diameter of the wick, include an inch for overlap, and separate them into two.
  3. Place the candle at the center of the wrapper and take one end, and twist it gently to avoid ripping. 
  4. Twist the terminal with tape and continue to do that on the other end of the candle. You can also add a bow or a ribbon if you want.

METHOD 3: THE COMBINATION METHOD 

This is the combination of two previous methods. You can follow the below-mentioned step to undergo this process successfully:

  1. Firstly, cut a portion from the gift wrapper that would entirely cover the candle. Then, leave an overlap of ½-inch so it can be pasted shut.
  2. After that, Leave at least two inches of the wrapper on both sides of the two flat terminals. Cut as required because the additional paper would turn the gift look chaotic. To assume how much lengthy paper you need, measure the diameter of the wick, include an inch for overlap, and separate them into two.
  3. Then, tape the round seam and select an end to initiate wrapping. Start with folding one terminal of the paper flat against the bottom-most of the candle and place it properly. Then stick up the wrapper on both sides. 
  4. After that, move an inch down the wrapper and create another pleat that overlaps the first. Continue this method until the entire bottom of the candle is covered. 
  5. Then secure the terminal with tape and continue to do that on the other end of the candle. You can also add a bow or a ribbon if you want.

METHOD 4: THE BOX OR GIFT BAG METHOD  

This is the easiest way, and also, it’s eco-friendly because the container you use is reusable. It can be a cute fabric bag or a storage container.

  1. Firstly, wrap the candle in tissue paper for proper protection. You don’t have to do it very neatly. 
  2. Secondly, place the candle inside the storage container. Confirm that the bottom is strong enough to support it, so the material of the candle doesn’t break.
  3. You can add decorative tissue paper on the top if you desire.
  4. You can also add a ribbon or a tag. 

CONCLUSION 

If you’re confused about how to wrap a candle, follow these four methods. At least one of these would indeed work for you. And while covering, make sure that your gift wrap looks just as beautiful as the aromatic candle itself.
