The end of the night after my walk is my time to unwind and pamper myself. I fill the tub up with hot water and add some bubble bath. I light a few scented candles to set the mood, and I relax.

Washi Tape Candles

I have been just grabbing the candle from the kitchen and bringing it into the bathroom, but I decided I wanted something that fit my mood better than a plain old jar candle.  With a little creativity and some Washi tape, I created these Washi Tape Candles.

I didn’t want to invest a lot of money into this, so I used what I had on hand. It’s a great way to feel pampered without blowing your budget. While I used glass votive holders, you could easily use baby food jars if you have them. Since I love to craft and decorate my planner, I always have washi tape.

The most important part of this for me was the candles. I like candles made with real essential oils instead of fragrance oils. I find them at our local health food store. You can choose whatever scent most relaxes you. I enjoy lavender.


  • Metal tray or dish
  • Two glass votive candle holders
  • Two votive candles
  • Two tealight candles
  • Washi tape
  • Flowers, rose petals, little rocks, beach sand, etc.

  • If you are re-using jars or candle holders, make sure that they are clean and dry before you begin.
  • Washi tape comes in different widths. Find a Washi tape that will match the height of your tealight candles. Wrap the tape around the candles.
  • Choose a coordinating color Washi tape to wrap around the glass votive candle holder. You can have more or fewer candles depending on the size of the tray or dish you’re using.
  • Add accents to the tray. I chose little pebbles, but you can use rose petals, seashells, sand, etc. depending on what you have and what makes you feel relaxed.
  • Light the candles, fill the tub and relax!

  1. What perfect timing. I just brought down from my bathroom window ledge, 4 little candles in clear glass containers. The bathroom wall needed repaired and it still needs painting but in the meantime I could decorate the candles. I have to pop out the screen and wash the window before all that but it will look nice when it’s done.
