DIY Dia de los Muertos unity candle

Guestpost by Niamh on May. 25th

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).
