Dressing Up Canned Candles

Ya know those little candles you can buy in the tins? Well right now, Michael's has two new fall themed scents in the canned candles that I'm in love with. One is called "Autumn Breeze" and the other "Fall Foliage" and they both smell like fall. Love it. The problem? It only comes in the canned candles and those are just displeasing to the eye. 

 So, I got to thinking that I could just cover it with scrapbooking paper. All I did was cut scrapbooking paper to fit around the side of the tin using the tin as my guide and glued it on with my fantabulous glue stick. Easy peasy! If you were giving these as a gift you could also trace the lid and cover that with paper as well. 

I did one with some cute fall polka dot paper. That one didn't need anymore embellishing. I did a second one in brown and gingham paper and then used one of my birthday gifts, a Martha Stewart owl punch, and punched out a few brown owls and glued those on the sides. Now, look at how cute they are!
