How To Make Gold + White Striped Candles

DIY Candles

I am so excited today is Wednesday because that means a new Flipping Out is on. Do you guys watch it? If you don't, I highly recommend turning it on. It's absolutely hilarious. And if you are an interior designer wannabe like me, it's a must. So, on to some DIYs! Today I'm sharing the tutorial for the Gold + White Striped Candles from my graduation party for Shutterfly. These are so chic for any party.

Gold Tape - I really like this Martha Stewart Gold Tape because it's opaque ... mine came with some other colors too (an added bonus)
White Candles - I got these IKEA ones ... love them because they are white white

Cut the tape into lengths that will fit around the candle. Wrap the tape strips around leaving an even amount of white between each strip. How easy was that?
