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~

Target’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.

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.

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.

  5. HI Kim, I found your post on the fish net candles at Ivy and Elephant’s party. Thanks for the idea. It would work in nicely with some of the beachy feel at my house!


  6. I like it, it looks better than the Target version and I love that it was FREE!!
    I am using a nautical theme in my house and just last week I made a seashell swag. I have a photo of the swag on my blog. I am going to look around your blog for more ideas 🙂
