Christmas Candle

Morning Peeps.  Hope you are all happy and well?  Today's posting is just because I want too.

My Christmas Candle

Products Used

I had never attempted this before so I contacted the lovely KATE for guidance.  I made two candles on the same day.  The other one will be on my blog on the 17th September and is part of a Card and Candle set.  I prefer that one to be honest.

Candle from Hobby Craft
Image:- Winter Fairy Talva
I printed and coloured the image on my usual card stock.
Photo Copied onto the tissue paper.
Cut out the image leaving a small margin around
Pressed image onto the candle.  Wrapped greaseproof paper or wax paper around the candle over the top of the image making sure there is no creases.
Heat gently until you can see the image goes shiny.
Die:- Christmas Wishes Header Fold Die Set - 598E - Tonic Studios
Ribbon is from my stash (Make sure the ribbon and paper wrap  is removed if you are going to light the candle) and not just using it for decoration.

I was going to glitter this candle but changed my mind as it couldn't be then used for burning.

Thank you for looking and thanks  KATE for your help.........

Thank you for looking.

  14. You could add glitter on, I don't think anyone would want to burn this beautiful candle. At least I would keep it as a treasure. That being said it doesn't need any glitter to be beautiful! I actually saw your post before leaving for work today, and I went to buy some white candles after work. So thanks for the inspiration, now I only need some courage to give it a go!
