Candle Transfers: Pinterest Challenge

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!

Love from

P.S. Are you following me on Facebook or Pinterest?
