I'm a Utahn, who lives in the south, and I've totally picked up this southern term.
Anyway- today I'm sharing a tutorial for decorative candles.
The supplies I used are:
(this post contains amazon affiliate links. If you click on the link and make a purchase, the price for you is the same, but a small percentage comes back to me)
plain white candles
tissue paper (I used gold polka dots, but any tissue paper would work)
I cut a strip of tissue paper down to a strip.
It was exactly the width of the candle and slightly smaller than the length.
Then I wrapped a piece of waxed paper around the candle,
and heated the candle little by little.
The candle melted a little bit and absorbed the tissue paper.
Then I peeled the tissue paper off.
It looked like the candle originally came as polka dotted. Like magic!!
I popped the candles onto some mis-matched candle sticks.
I love the way they look!
I had some tissue paper that I printed from another project and made it into another candle.
I love it so much!
I'm not done making candles yet- I'm going to keep making them!!
They are so simple, so fun and easily customizable to any pattern or design!
