DIY Monogram Candle Holder

Last month I compiled a list of easy DIY Spring Projects to do with my Silhouette Cameo(see it here)--and this past weekend, I got my chance to make the first one on my list!

My inspiration came from this image I found on Pinterest here. I loved the big curly letters used in this monogram and the idea of a monogram on a candle. I think it would be the perfect accessory for a sofa table or by the bed. And who doesn't love a personalized gift? This Monogram Candle Holder could be given for a birthday, at a shower or as a hostess present.

To make your own, you will need: 
-Silhouette Cameo
-Printable Gold Foil by Silhouette
-Glass Container or Jar

The overview of this project is: 
1. Download Font
2. Cut Letters using your Silhouette Cameo
3. Stick the letters to the Glass Container

Now let's take a closer look at the steps!
1. Before I began, I downloaded this interlocking script font called "Monogram KK" from fonts2u.com here. 

If you have never downloaded a font, or you need help, just follow the simple directions for downloading fonts to a PC or Mac here.
2. Once you have downloaded the font, open up your Silhouette Cameo software. (If you are new to Silhouette, I recommend watching some tutorials on YouTube or visiting their site. I love my Silhouette, but it took a few times to get used to it and figure out how to use it. I am by no means an expert yet- it's kind of like a sewing machine. The more you try, the better you get!) Any font you download on your computer will automatically show up in your Silhouette font library.

I measured my glass container and determined my letters needed to be 2.5 inches tall and 3.5 inches tall (the middle initial is taller than the side letters). Since my three letters didn't take up a lot space and my gold foil paper is 8.5x11, I decided to cut out a few more letters and save them to make gifts for family members in the future :) 

After sending the document to cut, I carefully peeled off the letters and stuck them onto the glass. This candle holder will not be safe for washing- but I don't really see why I would need that option anyway! The letters are the perfect font-- a beautiful interlocking script. 

I just love how it turned out and how easy it was to make!
