Cricut Vinyl Personalized Candle Gift

Every year DH and I host Thanksgiving at our house.  A few years ago, I started giving little gifts to all the adult women.  So sorry men.  LOL!  This year I decided to create personalized candles.

I found these great smelling little candles at WalMart for $1 EACH!!!  Only $1!!!  Woo hoo!  When giving candles as a gift I always try to stick with very basic smells…and also smells I like (LOL)…so I give vanilla and cupcake scents.  I was quick to buy these candles because of their good smell, small price AND because the tag says it’s “easy peel”.  Guess what?  They really did come off easily!

Now we have some naked candles.  Time to dress them up!  I used my Gypsy and the Songbird Cricut cartridge to weld and create the names.

That pretty vinyl comes from Expressions Vinyl.com.  I love it!

AND NOW…We need to ribbon these babies up!

I bought that ribbon at Hobby Lobby.  The snowflake brads came from Michael’s.  I got them last year, but they probably still sell them.  (Amazon sells snowflake brads too.)  All I did was tie the ribbon in a square knot and basically wrap the brad around it.  Simple and Cute!

I hope the ladies like their personalized candles and I hope YOU have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

  1. Love the candles Joy. I give a small gift to all the ladies at Thanksgiving too and I did candles this year too but mine were covered in xmas paper and cricut tags that said Happy Holidays. Everyone loved them! I love making special things for my guest. TFS

  2. Ok, so I’m sitting here surfing and came back to your vinyl projects (I’m currently doing a vinyl project myself) and noticed how you prop your Gypsy up. WOMAN, you are a GENIUS! Oh my gosh, what a great idea – a plate stand! I’m certain I have one sitting around here SOMEWHERE that isn’t being used. And once I find it – It WILL BE!!!!


  3. Oh my goodness so cute…..anyone should be proud to receive a personalized candle or even a personalized anything….thanks so much for sharing!!!!!!

  4. What color exactly is this (I assume it also is the same color used on white pumpkin)? I wanted to add it to my Expressions Vinyl order tonight!

    1. Hi Audrey,
      I think it’s either persimmon or nut brown. I’m leaning toward persimmon. 😉 I got it last year and don’t remember which one it is for sure.
