Stamped Candles

Believe it or not it won't be long until it's Christmas and there really isn't as much time left as you think! So I thought I would repost about one idea you could do for Christmas gifts. Stamped Candles Using permanent ink I stamped my image onto tissue paper, cut out the image leaving about a 1/4 inch gap and then coloured it in with pencils. I then positioned the image onto the candle and then wrapped waxed paper around the candle and started heating it up with my heat gun. The wax from the wax paper slowly melts into the tissue paper adhering it to the candle. You can tell if it working or not as the image changes colour as it melts into the candle. I then took off the waxed paper.






  1. Oh my goodness! I never realized you could image transfer this way onto candles! FABULOUS!

  2. What a great idea! These would be great for neighbor/ teacher gifts. I'm pinning it.

  3. Wow, what a clever idea! I had no idea this could be done - great tip :) XOL

  4. That's so clever! I love the little candles! Great idea
