DIY Ornamental Grass Candles


Simple, beautiful and inexpensive – these DIY ornamental grass candles require minimal materials and are incredibly easy to make.


  • candles of choice
  • dried ornamental grass and/or flowers of choice*
  • scissors
  • parchment paper
  • iron
  • yarn
  • hot glue gun


  1. Position your dried greenery onto the candle. Carefully lay a piece of parchment on top.
  2. Run the hot iron over the parchment paper to melt the wax underneath.
  3. Once your greenery has adhered to the candles, slowly peel off the parchment paper. (Make sure to always use a fresh piece of parchment paper when continuing with the other candles, to avoid getting wax onto the greenery.)
  4. Wrap the yarn around the bottom of the candles several times, cut and fasten the end with a dab of hot glue.

Never leave burning candles unattended.
