My main approach to DIY home decor is to embrace the unique elements of each season in my color scheme and accent pieces. Luckily fall has so many gorgeous colors and beautiful changes in nature to celebrate! Of all the color palettes, I must say that fall includes some of my very favorite hues. Emerald greens, shades of plum and warm, inviting yellows – it doesn’t get any better! These wheat candle wraps are a simple project to add some fall elements to your living room or dining room.
You can use any sort of specialty paper for these wheat candle wraps, but we used our favorite text weight metallic paper from Paper-Papers. Playing off my favorite fall color scheme, we made candle wraps in copper and rich golds. Find the links to the papers we used in the Shop this Project section! Download the SVG cut file below to use with your cutting machine. To create an abundant look perfect for fall, we wrapped our candles three times with the wheat design. Each wrap will use one sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper. The number of times that you wrap the paper around the candle of course depends on your preference and how large your specific candles are.
You can secure the ends of your wraps together using a glue dot roller or basic Scotch tape. Make sure to stagger the wheat stocks when you are wrapping your candle for the full look. Once you add your wheat candle wraps, you can wrap some twine around the center bands for a rustic twist. Tie a bow or a knot, it’s up to you! When your candles are ready you can display them as a simple centerpiece on your dining room table or sprinkle them around your living room or mantel. Our wheat candle wraps look especially great as Halloween or Thanksgiving decor. For more inspiration check out all of our DIY home decor projects.
