DIY Winter Forest Candle Gift

Animals seem to find their way into the majority of my creative projects… and these DIY forest-inspired holiday candles are no exception! 😉

This Winter Forest Animal Candles Trio is the 2nd project I created for Cricut Design Space this season. They coordinate with my HWTM Flannel and Frost materials that are available at JOANN stores and on joann.com right now!

I used my Wild Rose Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Flannel and Frost Vinyl Sampler for this project. Of course, you can use your own favorite patterns and colors to customize this project however you like. 💛

Candles + Creativity

To make this set, I bought inexpensive candles from a discount store and removed the labels. These candles have a frosted finish, which felt like it fit well with the wintery vibe. ☃️ Look for candles with lids so that you can customize the top of them, too! I added a bit of patterned vinyl to these lids and it really made them pop.

The abstract animal pattern definitely took me the longest to finish out of the entire Flannel and Frost materials line, so I was particularly excited to put it to use! You can see it on the lid here:

Making Project Adjustments

When you pull the project up in Design Space, all 3 designs will load. If you only want to make one or 2 of them, simply delete whatever you don’t need. You can also repeat a design if you want to cut multiple copies of it at once! Design Space will automatically adjust to cut what you need. 🙌

You can also change the colors of elements to use more or fewer materials. These designs would even look great in a single color. I love having the pops of pattern and metallic though!
