Use vellum paper and your Cricut to transform your candles to match the seasons.
You’ll love this tutorial if you’re like me and lack the space to store your seasonal decorations!
The principle is to use vellum paper (or tracing paper) and adhesive vinyl to wrap your candles.
Simply fix the tracing paper around the (electric) candle with a tiny piece of tape.
This way, when the season ends, you can simply remove the tape and store the decoration flat! You can then replace it with the next decoration!
