How to Fold a Napkin into a Candle

Learn how to fold a napkin into a candle with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.


Now we're going to fold a candle.

We're going to take your napkin on a diagonal, and this is a beautiful silver napkin that will give us a nice glow to our table. We're going to fold it in half, to create a triangle. And then we're going to pull it back, and fold about two inches up. And then we're going to start on this edge back here, and we're going to start rolling from the bottom to the top. You just tuck and roll, and you'll start to see your candle take shape.

And then once you get to the end and you have this tail here, you can kind of just tuck it in the bottom there underneath, so it can stand upright on the dish. And then you're going to peel back one of these layers. That can be our dripping wax, right there.

And that's how you fold a candle napkin.
