{candle sleeves}

I have always admired the look of the KaarsKoker candle sleeves from the first time I saw them in one of my magazines. When in Portland we had a chance to look @ them firsthand in one of the shops. Sister & I almost walked out of the store with some in hand but we couldn't decide which ones we wanted. When I got home I went to KaarsKoker's website and was pleased to see that you could order them direct. In the meantime I thought why not play around with pretty papers. I think it is fun and I plan to switch the candle sleeves out on a regular basis. I feel that they can give my chandelier either a festive or an updated look depending on the paper that I choose. So simple & fun.

  

  


Here's mine except they aren't crafted with as much quality but hey for $1.00 not too bad.


Go here to see more of the fabulous desgins KaarsKoker has to offer.  I still am trying to make up my mind on which ones I want.

Luv! Not a bad idea at all! You always get me thinking... Although, it's the "acting" part that's tricky.

I like the idea of the paper. You can change it as often as you like. Any gift wrapping paper would work well for this. You can get it in so many patterns and colors. What a great look it is and adds so much beauty as well.

yours look great!

my mom did something similar a few years back (to save a few $) she made them with white plumbing pipes/tubes and wrap wallpaper around the pipes. so you could change them out from season to season. but your chandelier looks perfect!
