Here is how to create a gorgeous candle centerpiece from a printed vellum paper.

Let your guest of honor shine with this simple creative touch.

What's you Colorado wedding style?

What you will need:

  • For each center piece you wish to create you will need three like-sized frames. Generally a 5×7 size will be a workable table size.
  • Photos you love, saved to a usb drive. If you don’t have the capacity to change the image to black and white on your own computer, take it to a digital photo studio and ask them to make the changes.
  • Paint or Wood Stain for the exterior of the frames to create the look you desire. Plus appropriate sized brushes, and sponge tipped brushes.
  • Neutral Colored Cloth Tape, or Book Binding Tape.
  • Glass Candle Holders smaller than the height of your frames.
  • Votive candles that will burn for the length of your event.

What you will do:

  • Remove the backing of each of the frames and discard.
  • Lightly sand the exterior surface of each of the frames.
  • Paint or Stain as desired. Set to Dry for 24 hours.
  • Set up each of the three like-sized frames in a triangular shape and tape edges together on the interior sides.
  • Print your chosen photos, either at home or take your USB stick to a digital photo shop and print your correctly sized black and white photos onto semi-transparent vellum paper. If you desire an aged look choose a beige paper.
  • Cut the photos to size, and slide into the glass slot on the interior side of the frames. add a small piece of tape to hold the photo flat inside the glass.
  • Place glass candle holder inside the triangular centerpiece. Place votive inside candle holder and light.
