Bought these cute cardboard boxes from one of those $2 shops (although there's not much available :) ) I coated them with some matt white spray paint (2 times) let them dry, then tangled and painted some clear gloss for protection.
I've been wanting to try to decorate a candle like this for ages!! I've got a week off work and had time to finally give it a go.
First draw your design on tissue paper, then wrap your paper around a candle. Next grab some waxed paper and wrap it around the candle. (so you have 2 layers now, the tissue paper and waxed paper). Then you carefully hover a heat gun or in my case, I used a hairdryer around the candle. You will see the colour of the paper changing - it kinda melts into the wax. As this was my first time, I wasn't sure how it would go and wanted to use a pattern that was fairly quick to draw as I was very eager to jump right in - I used Mi2 - a longtime favourite of mine. I hope you like it - thanks for looking :)
These are letters I've gifted to my family and friends
