"Stamped Candle"


Here is a candle that I stamped for VSN. I stamped the tissue paper and then colored it with markers. Then I wrapped it around the candle and wrapped wax paper around that and heated it with my heat gun. If you haven't made one of these you have to try it. They are so fun. You can either stamp solid stamps or outlined stamps and color them with markers. If you stamp with solid stamps you might want to wait a minute before you heat it so that the ink can dry so it doesn't run. I made a few mistakes when I started making these. I get my candles at the dollar store. You can find the directions here for the stamped candles.
Stamps: Fall Whimsy, Tags and more
Paper: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Tissue Paper
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: SU Markers, Wax Paper, Candle, Hemp Twine, Crimper, Heat Gun
