Decorating candles with your rubber, clear or acrylic stamps for special people in your life can be a lovely way to show you care about them.
Who can resist a gift candle that has been especially made just for them? If you are a stamper, embellishing a candle could be one of the easiest Christmas or special occasion crafts you may find. It takes very little time and money to create such a home-made masterpiece.
"Lamps make oil-spots and candles need snuffing;
it is only the light of heaven that shines pure and leaves no stain"
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
WARNING: I assume you probably know all this, but just in case.....Candles decorated with tissue should not be burned unless you place them in a hurricane lamp or similar for safety in the event that the tissue catches on fire, and please, NEVER burn ANY candle and leave it unsupervised!
Safety comes first, always.
There is an inexpensive candle-safe product available
for stamping on. Do not be tempted to use ordinary tissue paper or
similar as it will catch fire as the candle burns down. Special decal
paper will not. Search the Amazon store or a nearby craft store for some.
Stay safe! Do only use specially made candle paper for transferring and applying your images if you intend to burn them, or clip the wick right down to stop people burning the candle if you use ordinary tissue.
Are you surprised how easy this is? I hope you enjoy your new-found skill for Decorating Candles. You could make one for almost any special occasion.
