Check out this awesome Dia de los Mertos embellished candle made by Tribe member Niamh to be used during a unity candle ceremony.
I made this candle because I was inspired by all my fellow offbeat brides! It was really neat effect and simple to put together…
Basically I machine embroidered the sugar skull design on organza, used some spray adhesive to attach it to the candle, and added ribbon and some bling, and ta da!!
I swear these days all you can get for unity candles is white, and maybe, if you're feeling really wacky, off-white. Mine is so much more personal, plus, it smells like apple crisp! Who wouldn't want their union to smell of apple crisp?
If you're interested there's a full tutorial here. And I hope you like! It was inspired by all you awesome gals (and guys).
