How to Make a Mesh Candle Centerpiece
This Mesh Candle Centerpiece will cast a soft glow across your table that will sparkle off of the glitter in its fluffy mesh base. Construct this candle with just a Bowdabra® bow maker, a battery operated candle and your favorite style of mesh.
Place duct tape
Fold over a 7" piece of duct tape and place it on the center of the glass candle base.
Glue foam circle
Glue the foam circle to the duct tape on the base.
Using the bow maker, create bows with a combination of mesh ribbon and #9 ribbon. The mesh bows should have 2 loops on each side, and the ribbon bows should have 1 loop on each side.
Create approximately 8 bows, and then begin attaching them to the foam base.
Alternate bows on top and bottom and from left to right with 2 bows on each side. Attach the bows with a U pin and then glue in place.
Place the battery operated candle on top of the foam. It does not need to be glued down, it will simply sit on the foam.
