Ready to make your own personalized Valentines candles?
Step 1 - Gather your supplies. You will need tissue paper, wax paper, a white candle, permanent markers and a heat gun. Oh yeah, you'll need some scissors too.
Step 2 - Trim a piece of tissue paper to fit the candle. Then draw your design with the markers. Be sure to have a piece of paper underneath, because the markers will definitely bleed through the tissue paper.
Step 3 - Cut around your design and remove any excess tissue paper.
Step 4 - Place your tissue paper on your candle.
Step 5 - Wrap the wax paper around the candle, keeping the tissue paper in place.
Step 6 - Use the heat gun to melt your design into the candle.
Remove the wax paper and you'll be amazed at how it just becomes part of the candle.
My kids had a lot of fun making these. My oldest daughter wants to make some for each of the holidays. Since they are so inexpensive and easy, we probably will.
