DIY classic Palm Sunday candle – olive branch


how to decorate the palm sunday candle – DIY – step by step

Today we celebrate palm friday (instead of palm sunday) in Doha. Strange no?!

Anyways, nothing will affect our happiness, teta and jeddo (grandmother and grandfather in arabic) are here to celebrate the holiday season with Nady.

They got olive branches from Lebanon, so i wanted this year to make the classic candle like old days.

Very easy and fast, could be the last minute candle. But in my opinion the most beautiful one with the olive branch symbol of peace.

All you need is washi paper and white ribbon. Make four parallel strips:

Baby blue washi tape to go with the green of the olive branch.

Then tie a thin white ribbon as a bow in the middle between the lines.
