Candles tutorial

Some of you asked me how I decorated the candles of my previous post...so I decided to show you my tutorial...sorry for the bad quality of the images...my camera didn't work very well!

















You need a candle, an image printed on vellum paper, oven paper, hair dryer...



















...place your image on the candle...

















...firmly wrap the candle with the oven paper...

















...heat with the hair dryer till the image is melted with the wax...

















..wait till the candle become cold and then gently remove the oven paper.
Done! It's easy, isn't it???
Hope to see your beautiful candles! They're a nice and cheap Christmas gift and you can personalize them with any kind of images and texts!

Is oven paper the same as wax paper?

Grazie per aver risposto al mio appello e per aver proposto uesto tutorial.
Un piccolo dispiacere è non aver avuto la risposta in italiano...ma non posso pretendere troppo.
A questo punto chiedo ancora ma si può stampare sulla carta velina?
Potresti dirmi come...perchè dovrei inserire il logo di un 'associazione su alcune candele e ho il logo sul pc e quindi non so come poterlo trasferire su una carta adatta alla candela.
Scusa il disturbo.

Calou ha detto...

Thank you !!! What is vellum paper ?? Bisou .

MariCrea ha detto...

Non vedo la tua mail quindi non posso rispondere al commento che mi hai lasciato ma ti dico una sola cosa:
GRAZIE!
A quanto pare è stato più facile per noi italiane capire che vellumpaper fosse la carta velina che alle signore di lingua inglese!
