Create a quick and easy Valentine candle centerpiece.
When I saw the colorful bright red garlands in the store, I just had to get one to make something.
When I also saw the large battery candles, I knew I could make a very simple but colorful centerpiece.
This is a great idea for when you need to have a centerpiece but no time to be elaborate. And it would look lovely with a real candle, too.

How To Make a Valentine Candle.
1. Set the candle where you want to display it.
2. Lay one end of the garland around the base of the candle.
3. Continue wrapping the garland around the candle until you have covered as much of it as you like.
You can wind layers or garland around the parts you have already wrapped and make a very thick wrap, too.
4. When you have the garland the way you like it, cut off the rest of the garland and tuck the end into the wrap.
A Valentine candle will look really pretty in the center of your table.
