fish net candleTooling around Target, I saw a fish net candle! Too cute! That’s when I remembered when I was organizing my crafty stuff I came across a  piece of fishnet fabric I used on a mural I painted some years back. I got all excited because I knew it would cost me nothing to make this candle! Here is my version~

Fishnet Candle 1Target’s version

Fishnet Candle


  • Pillar Candle
  • Fishnet
  • Hot Glue & Gun
  • Straight Pins
  • Scissors


Cut the ends of the net so they are a straight and even piece of fabric.

make a fish net candle

Carefully pin the net on one edge of the candle. Roll the net and pin the net tight to the candle even with the other end of the net you just pinned. Straighten maneuver and tighten the net to fit the candle.

DIY fish net candle tutorialTrim the long end of the net even with the first pins. I left the bottom edge a little longer and pinned it to the bottom. (This is because it is almost impossible to make both ends even on the edges). Trim top edge of the net even with the edge of the candle.

Hot glue the knots together on edges. Then hot glue the bottom nets and remove pins. That’s it! This cost me nothing and mine are more authentic than Target! Their version wasn’t even a net it was a molded wax rope.
