I love looking at vintage cake decorations and candles – some of them are so adorable and unique! If you’re looking for a different way to decorate a cake for someone’s birthday this year, try making these foil candle holders. You won’t believe how quick and easy they are!
Step 1: Cut the foil tray into circles about 1″ in diameter.
Step 2: On the cutting mat, use the screw punch to make a hole the size of the birthday candles (or as close in size as possible; smaller is better than larger).
Step 3: Cut snips and wedges into the edges of the circles, making sure that there are an even number of cuts when finished.
Step 4: Carefully bend and curl the strips up and down to form a layered/3D look.
Step 5: Slide the birthday candles into the center holes. If the candles are too big, use a kitchen knife to taper the bottom edges until they fit. Decorate your cake!
