The Holiday season is coming very soon and here is the best way to kickstart your holiday DIYs. These printed candles are unbelievably easy to make and totally personalize-ble. You can make these into creepy Halloween candles, Warm and cozy Fall designs or create any theme for that special someone this Christmas.
White Pillar Candles
*This part is if you decide to print a photo from online or something you made.
1.) Because tracing paper is thin and can tear easily, take your tracing paper and tape it to a sheet of printing paper. Next, print out your design onto the tracing paper. Make sure you use a laser printer and not an inkjet for printing! Otherwise your image will turn out blotchy. I’ve seen similar tutorials on the internet and no one stated this!
You can also skip this step and simply draw your own design with a sharpie. This will make a great activity for kids to get involve with!
2.) Trim off the excess paper around your image and make sure the design fits onto your candle.
3.) Cut out a piece of wax paper that is big enough to fit around your candle. Take your image and place it onto your candle, then wrap the wax paper around the candle with the smooth side facing down.
4.) Use a hairdryer to heat up the design. Hold it about 1-2 inches away from the candle and slowly warm the candle until you can see the wax paper melting and the ink showing through. Make sure to grip the wax paper firmly so that your design doesn’t slip.
5.) Carefully peel away the wax paper and enjoy your newly decorated candle!
