I created a fun and super easy Graphic 45 Season’s Candle that was share on the Graphic 45 Blog on Friday…so make sure to stop by there to check out my Season’s Frame that is also a part of my post.


“Hi Graphic 45 fans…are you getting excited about the holidays! I am!!! I love to have a few special gifts in the house during this time of year. You never know when you will need on… so I am sharing a quick and easy; under 60 minutes altered candle. You can easily recreate with any of Graphic 45 collections but I chose the “new” Seasons Collection for my Altered Candle” Pam

Create a belly band from pieces of Seasons Collection Pattern Paper.

Wrap jar with prepared belly band.

Fussy two of the Epherema pieces from pattern paper; layer together with pop dots and place on front of jar.

 Add ribbon to jar.

Add floral leaves and berries around Epherema.

 Add sunflower, floral leaves and berries to top of jar along with fussy cut image from paper.

1.      Keep small generic gifts on hand that have been decorated with Graphic 45 Paper Collections to give over the holidays.
2.      Use scraps of left over scrapbook paper to decorate gift bags and tags with.

  1. Your altered candle is beautiful!!!! My favorite thing about Fall is seeing all the beautiful color changes of foliage….plus pumpkins and acorns…love those as part of a fall theme. :)

  3. Gail says:

    Fall is my favorite season simply because of the colors! Even the sky is a different color blue this time of year.And oh the golden cast the evening shadows make! Your post is equally as beautiful! Thanks for sharing.


  4. I love how you have decorated that candle so beautifully. What a wonderful display candle to show off during the Fall season. I love all the Autumn colors and decorations you added to it. Colorful leaves are my favorite things about the Fall season. All the leaves in their pretty hues really are so gorgeous!

  6. Pammejo says:

    Thanks Gail for stopping by…I definitely will pay closer attention to the blue sky.


  7. Pammejo says:

    Yes Verna it will be hard to light this candle up but thankfully I will have the topper to add to another candle and maybe…fingers crossed be able to move the wrap to another candle.
