Design on a Dime Blog: Broke & Boujee DIY Dollar Tree Décor Versace & Louis Vuitton Candles

I thought I was in love with my Chanel No. 5 Paris Parfum Vase Dollar Tree DIY. However, I’m absolutely obsessed with my Versace & Louis Vuitton Dollar Tree DIY Candles! :0


And guess what?...They only cost me $6 to make!


Materials Needed:


  • 1 White Tissue Paper
  • 1 Roll of Wax Paper
  • 1 Printer Paper
  • 1 Glue Stick
  • 2 Candles





As I mentioned in the Chanel Vase DIY post, Nava Rose has an awesome step by step tutorial on YouTube.  Her tutorial will show you how to make these yourself. The cool part is you can choose anything you want to put on your candle.


Below is her video tutorial on how to make designer candles for yourself. Just press the Play Button to view.
