Using newspapers, we can cover up the candles or holders after cutting a specific patterns like we did. We made use of the little shape paper cutters. This cutter cuts the paper in the “snow flakes” shape. We cut the paper randomly and covered the candle holder. It looked more attractive after lighting the candles.

#5 JUTE THREADS

Jute threads are one of the best decorative things. Using these threads, making a bow or random patterns will make the candle or the holder (in my case), fit for the dinner table or the room corner.
