i just haven't been very good at posting it.
(hopefully) over the next few days, i am going to post a few little ideas that i have been meddling with, quick and easy for the crazy holidays.
faux printed candles:
this is a great idea with a great video tutorial by the fab heidi swapp.
i used the christmas greetings mega brush kit from house of 3. they also offer a holiday candle kit specifically sized for making these candles.
a few hints:
printing on tissue paper is a beast. just be patient.
use pins instead of adhesive. much easier. stick it like a voodoo doll.
the wax will get a bit bumpy. you can smooth it out, but i like to just let go and live with the imperfections.
very fun to use the heat tool.
and there you have a great inexpensive gift.
