@Brittanyg20:  You wrap the paper around a cylinder vase.  Overlap the ends and secure with double sided tape.  You could then slide out the vase and put in LED lights/candles, or keep the vase and use a regular candle.  I would skip the spray painting (if possible) because you will want thinner (lighter weight) paper which will curl and be a pain to paint.

Doesn’t Ikea have nice ones? I remember a Canadian Bee who had a destination wedding in Sweden using Ikea ones; they looked really nice!


If I were you, OP, I would also scout:
– Goodwill
– any Christian thrift stores; there’s a really awesome thrift store in Edmonton, AB.
