We hope to bring you some video on our blog next week, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out this adorable candle holder by Deena!

Snowflake Embellished Candle

Hello, Friends!

Have you ever been in the situation where you need a gift, but you don't have time to go to the mall, and you really don't want to spend a lot of money?  {I know I've been in that situation!}   ;)

Well, the next time you are at the craft store, pick up a few extra candles and you could easily create this masterpiece for a gift!  ;)

Debi created this stunning candle that would make the perfect gift!

Instructions:
Die-cut Snowflakes from layers of tissue paper. Using a heat embossing tool, carefully heat up the side of the candle until it is slightly warm. Quickly place Snowflakes on warm candle. Lay a piece of waxed paper over the top of Snowflakes and heat up just to melting point. Remove waxed paper and finish heating up Snowflake until wax just barely covers tissue paper. Repeat this step until entire candle has been covered. Tie ribbon around candle and add jewels for embellishment.

Note: Remove embellishment before lighting candle.


Products Used:
Other Supplies: Candle, Colored Tissue Paper, Crystal Drop, Heat Tool, Rhinestone Embellishment, Ribbon, Waxed Paper

I know if I received a candle like this, I'd never light it!  :)  I'd just keep it like this for decoration!  :)


Happy Crafting!

Hugs,
Stephanie
