DIY Unity Candle

This was one of the first DIY projects I added to my list. The price of unity candle sets are outrageous! I purchased the pillar candle and two tapers from my local craft store and with a coupon all three came to under $5.00. I had my amazing knottie monogram maker Jill rework the monograms she origionally designed so that it would work better. I then printed the monogram on vellum paper, cut it to size, added some bling and, using glue dots, sealed it to the candle. I then used ribbon to frame it out. I don't think the picture does it justice! When all was said and done, I easily did this project for under $10.00, which I would guess saved me about $20.00.
