Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2002
- Choose candles, decorative paper, and ribbon in colors that match the palette of your table setting. Also purchase enough matchboxes for each guest to get his or her own.
- Cut strips of decorative paper, sized to fit around the matchbox sleeve plus 1/2 inch for overlap. Wrap the sleeve of each matchbox in a strip of paper; glue at the overlap.
- Tie the matches to the candles using the ribbon. Finally, add a short length of decorative Dresden foil flowers, just enough to fit atop the box, using craft glue.
- Beeswax candles
- Decorative paper
- Craft glue
- Dresden foil flowers
Wedding guests will appreciate a simple, thoughtful favor of beeswax candles and personalized matches.
