    Default How can you decorate candles?

    I'm not planning on making candles, but decorating bought ones.

    I'm sure we've talked about this before, but now I can't find anything on it?

    How can you decorate candles?

    Please give me some ideas

    you can use the studs for decorating blue jeans......
    You can paint them......
    You can use pins to add beads or sequins.........
    you can put twisted wire with charms and beads around them..
    You can cover them with a pretty tisue (apply the tissue wet and cover with a coat of melted wax.....
    Add dried pressed flowers and cover with melted wax....
    Cover them with birch bark.....
    You can carve them..... Carve designs in them and add some other colored wax to the carved areas......
    Line cinnamon sticks vertically around it, hot gluing as you go and tie off with raffia....

    Oh these are brilliant ideas - Thank you so much!

    I couldn't find any threads anywhere? But I must have seen them to think of you or maybe I just knew you'd have an answer LOL

    Thank you ladies - this has been very helpful!

    I have 10 making days left and still not enough things
