The other day I saw a picture on Instagram of rosemary wrapped around a candle, and thought that’s so easy to do, plus I have everything you’d need.  This isn’t really a craft, but just a way to class up a bland candle in a jar, or a way to get a great scent from scentless candles.  I also found this pin using lavender, which would be great to use around candles as centerpieces.

What you’ll need:

  • Candle in glass jar
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • Twine / yard

Not too many steps here..  Just tie some twine around the glass container with the candle inside.  I just tied it around the candle once, but in hindsight, I think it looks cuter if you tie it a few times around.  Maybe next time..

Then just stick your rosemary sprigs in the twine, around the candle, and light the candle.  I trimmed the rosemary so it wasn’t taller than the candle itself, which also helped it stand up straighter.

Voila!  You have now added some rosemary scent to a candle.


Note: After burning the candle for a few hours, the rosemary got hot and started to wilt, so this is more of a short term solution, unless you don’t plan on burning your candle.
