Decorating Candles

I love candles. When I am decorating for an event or a holiday, I like to use candles. I always have a bunch of cheap white candles lying around. I like to spice them up with some glue and glitter. I use white school glue and paint the sides of the candle with it and then roll it in different colored glitter, depending on what I need. It's cute and it looks good too! Great centerpiece!

A few years ago I decorated candles in a few different ways, & the one that was the second most popular was the easiest one to decorate (the first was with sea shells).


If you try this you will need:-
3 or 4 inch wide WHITE candles 6 inches or higher, paper napkins with pictures - could be flowers, cartoon, party, seasonal etc, an iron - preferably a no steam one, a travel iron works well - tare out the picture from the napkin approximately an inch from the picture & separate layers using only the top one, put the iron on lowest heat, then centering the picture. With light pressure, place the iron in the middle center of the picture & lightly press & "sweep" the iron to the outer edge of the picture, then again center to the other side. You might find it easier to turn candle upside down for the other side. Do not go from one side to the other or it will crease or be off sided.

If you miss any you can lightly repeat, but will look far better if you don't have to, with a little experience they will be perfect, for a little pizzas the candles may be sprayed lightly with clear glitter glue, I hope I have made the instructions clear as these are lots of fun to make!
