Three Ways to Decorate a Candle

Last year I was supposed to teach some ladies how to decorate a candle. During the class, we ran out of time and never did get to make one. I decided to have just a candle class this time around. I have 3 different ways we can decorate a candle. These would make excellent Christmas gifts or for any time of year depending on your choice of stamps.

The first candle is the one we were supposed to make last year. They will learn how to put stamped images onto the candle. The trick is to not melt the candle too much. Yep, I have done that before.

The second candle (to the right) is decorated using Stampin' Up! rub-ons. The ones I have chosen are retired now, but we do have some that you can buy from the current catalog and in the holiday mini, as well.

The third candle, which is down below, is decorated using designer series paper. This candle is my favorite of the three.
You will have to let me know what you think of these. If you have any other ideas you can let me know that too. It is always a good thing to try and better ourselves, right? I think it is.
As always, thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. If it has inspired you to try one, please let me know. I would love to know that something I did helped you want to try something new too.
Have a great day!
Now go-n-stamp!!
