Dear Chicago House,
I have been dabbling with Pinterest, it is a great source of beautiful things and gives me lots of ideas.
For instance…how to turn dull white candles into something more lovely like here. I had to have a go myself and abracadabra and a little candle transfer later here we go.
I started off by designing a funky pattern in Illustrator and printed it out on tissue paper which I had taped on plain paper. (comment for a free download of the pattern !)
Next I cut a strip of my design and wrapped it around a boring white candle. A quick blast with my hair drier melted the wax enough to make the tissue paper stick.
It was super easy and I can see lots of occasions where I will make these again!
