Quick And Easy Candle DIY - Makes A Perfekt Gift

10 12 2013 DIY

Who doesn't like some pretty and unique candles, right?

I think, they make a perfekt handmade gift for everyone.

Done in a few minutes and with very few requirements one usually has at home anyway.

You need:

- white or creme candles, size and length is your choice

- some pretty paper napkins with designs that would fit on a narrow and long candle. I especially liked to use the ones with text.

- scissors

- an old teaspoon

- a tea-light 

Start by pulling apart all layers of your paper napkin until only the top one with the design is left. Cut - or - and I like this best - tear out your design.

Lay out on your candle until you are happy with the look. 

Start with holding one piece in place with your fingers.

Warm the teaspoon like shown on the picture over the tea-light for about 30 seconds.

Now - using the warm rounded part of your spoon - stroke gently and quickly allover your napkin piece melting the paper right onto the candle.

Then do the next piece until your design is complete.

You will quickly get a feeling for the right temperature and the gentle pressure you need.
