I’m currently obsessed with marble. The marble containers that have been trending are so pretty, but expensive. I looked for them in bulk on the Chinese websites, but I certainly didn’t need 500! I really wanted to use them for candle containers, like the ones at Bath and Body Works, so I examined one and thought “How hard could this be?”
Here is what you need: scissors, a soft measuring tape, straight sided containers and peel & stick marbled contact paper. I found glass cylinders with lids at Hobby Lobby on sale. They come with cork or wood lids. These containers are food safe, and have a fairly good seal. The contact paper was at Amazon.
Measure the height and diameter of your straight sided container. Then mark the back of the contact paper with your measurements.
Cut your strip and I rolled it the opposite way so it would be easier to handle and wouldn’t try to curl on me. If you have multiple jars the same size you are covering, cut them all using your perfect template.
Peel off the contact paper and wrap your cylinders. So easy and it looks like marble! I’m making candles in mine, but they would also be great gifts. Add candy, cookies or other treats. This would be a great idea for larger canisters and would look great anywhere.
