Cute Candles!!!!

The first thing I would like to share with you is we will be launching the creative inspirations challenge blog on Wednesday 25 march :) So please pop along and join in!!

Also I have a few little creations to share with you :) I decided I wanted to make something a little different for mothers day this year so after looking at a few of bevs altered items i was inspired to decorate some candles, which were alot easier to make than i first thought!!

So here is the first one i made for my mummy :) She was delighted with it this morning, she loves seeing all my little creations lol

and here is the second one i made which is for my Nan. I used the same image on the candle as i did on her card so its a matching gift :) (you can see the card in the post below) I am entering this candle into:

  • ABC - F is for flowers
  • Stamp something - think spring

Recipie:

  • Martha stewart doily punch for the bottom border
  • penny black spring greetings image
  • prima flower


To make you own candle all you need is:

  • a plain candle
  • Thin tissue paper
  • a heat tool
  • greaseproof paper

Method

  1. Stamp your desired image onto thin tissue paper and colour it in (i also used glitter glue for the little bees wings which looks really effective!)
  2. Cut around the image carefully
  3. Place the image into place on the candle
  4. then wrap greaseproof paper around the candle, hold it tightly so that the image stays in place
  5. Gently heat it with you heat tool, it will glisten when the image is melted into the wax
  6. gently take of the greaseproof paper and your done :)

Thanks for popping over to take a look!!!!
