DIY candle sleeves

Hope you all had a great weekend!  We attended a lovely wedding in Denver & I realized:
a) Weddings are not as fun sober.
b) I'm not as fun sober.

I recently made a subtle/easy update to our dining room chandelier. Though I would love to replace our current one (a clearance item from Home Depot) with a statement-making fixture (this one's fun), I can't really justify it at the moment. The current fixture functions and blends in just fine with our current aesthetics.

So I just customized ours a bit with more interesting candle sleeves which took mere minutes. Inexpensive (unlike these, chic as they are) & not at all permanent, so I won't feel guilty if the urge to change it up strikes (it inevitably always does).  Inspired by Jeannine's project, I measured scrap book paper that I already had, cut, attached the sleeves, & instead of a glue stick, I used matte tape to join the seams; it's practically invisible.

DISCLAIMER: Depending on the bulb wattage/type of paper/length of time you leave your light on, you might want to be attentive of any potential flammable hazards.

Subtle, I know (did I mention I'm color-phobic) but I like it enough for now.  I guess not even a light fixture can escape my grasp.  This must be why I'm not allowed over at any of our friends' houses, or so I tell myself.  No worries, I'll just keep driving by their homes.  Slowly.  At night.  Every night. Whilst peering through any window I can.  Stalking is like really time-consuming though.
