Happy Christmas Candles

Hello Everyone

My final Christmas project of the year - I can't believe Santa will be round so soon! Where did that year go?

Today I am sharing a stamped candle set that I made using Season of Joy, Contempo Christmas and Perfect Punches stamp sets.


If you have never made stamped candles before, it is easy to do. You stamp your image on tissue wrapping paper, cut out the images and place on the candle. Next to tightly hold them on to the candle using baking parchment. You then hold a heat gun over the image until the surface wax starts to melt - the tissue is then absorbed into the candle.

Watch out for your fingers - it is easy to burn them if you are not careful. All candles melt at different rates, so you will need to check as you go and re-heat if you can still see the tissue paper.

Wishing each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year. X
