Check out how we made these DIY Cane Wrapped Candles. Perfect for any home!
Our new (old) house has a wonderful front patio. It is twice as big as our back patio so we have been spending so much time out front. It is a brick patio and in the evenings it is absolutely beautiful. I have hung lights but needed more candles on the outdoor coffee table and side tables.
Now, these cane wrapped candles will look wonderful inside as well. I have a room filled with shelving and these jar candles will add some beautiful texture and pattern.
What is cane or cane webbing?
Cane webbing is a woven material, part of the wicker family. It is used for furniture, specifically for chairs and cabinets. Often you will see it on seats of chairs. It has made a comeback and very on trend in the past few years. Cane webbing comes in different designs – the traditional webbing and a favorite of ours, open box weave webbing.
In most DIY projects using cane webbing, you will need to soak the webbing first. I traditionally use the bath tub to do this. But for this candle project, there is no need to soak it if you want to save a step!
