A simple Mother’s Day gift idea for Moms who like adding to their seasonal home decor – tropical candle wraps! Mother’s Day is the one of those glorious spring holidays that can remind us of the warmer months ahead, so why not add some tropical accents around the house? We have designed our entire 2017 Mother’s Day collection with the tropics in mind, and up next in the series is this set of printable candle wraps and coordinating matchbox covers. All of the hibiscus and monstera leaf illustrations for this set were designed by our wonderful botanical illustrator Laurel Autumn, with the typography done by our senior designer Lindsay (browse our wedding paper goods to see her standouts!).
Printing the Candle and Matchbox Decor
Download the PDF below for the different designs. There are two candle wraps and three different matchbox covers you can use to make your gift. You can print the page onto full sheet label paper to stick the wraps directly to the candles and matchboxes. Another option is to print onto regular printer paper and glue or tape the labels. Up to you! We would recommend using these tropical candle wraps with plain white candles, and you may even be able to find some with a pretty tropical scent.
To continue with our Tropical Mother’s Day Collection, we are sharing a printable set of gift wrap that you can use for standard boxed gifts. You can find the templates for those paper tropical leaves and paper orchids in the photos – we also shared how to make a gorgeous paper tropical wreath with them for your home decor! Flowers are always a classic gift for Mom, so be sure to see our crepe paper hibiscus tutorial if you want to make her a bouquet that will last even after the season ends.
