More to choose from

I tried out a few more shapes and styles of candles for this quick and easy project.  They are so easy you could easily get carried away.  Some shapes are obviously easier than others and I found that the cheaper candles do better than the nicer ones.  I think more expensive candles are not made to deface so easily.  Here are my newest endeavours from simple to a little more elaborate.

This one was fun to do.  I added a few more pieces to give an overall design.  I think its one of my favorite.  I wrapped some black tule around the bottom.  A nice inexpensive touch.
I couldn't help but do another with the sassy witch.  This time I added a few more elements to the design.  Plus I added colored glitter to her hat, tights, the broom (can't tell in pic) and a button on the ribbon at the bottom.

These are some of the "odd" shaped candles that I tried.  A little votive is simple, I think I will melt the wax around the top a little to give it a dripping look.  The round candle is limiting because of its shape.  The stick candle is tricky but do-able.

If you don't do Halloween.  Fall is the next best thing:)  This was a little more tricky with so many pieces.  I used my fingernail to "tack" them down into the wax before I rolled it up in the wax paper.  I think it turned out quite nicely.


  1. Loving it. You may send me all of them...your finished candles I mean. Thanx

  2. Love these! It's been awhile since I've done this technique...I think I will have to try it again. Now a follower from the CTMH BB blog list!
