Michelle’s Wonderfall Stamped Candle

Michelle Hoover shared a beautiful homemade gift idea at our Demo Team Meeting last week, and it's surprisingly easy to create!

Check out her gorgeous decorative candle!  This 6" vanilla candle is stamped with the En Francais background stamp in Early Espresso, then embellished in a lovely autumn theme.

She added Champagne Glass Glitter to the bottom of the candle by painting on Crystal Effects with an Aqua Painter, then rolling it in the glitter.

Then, she adhered a collage of Autumn Accents die-cuts stamped with images from the Wonderfall stamp set in Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, and Early Espresso.  See my previous Wonderfall post for some tips for stamping on die-cuts.

Michelle finished off the candle with an Old Olive Bright Button tied with Linen Thread

Please note: Because of the card stock accents, this candle is basically for decoration, but you could still use it if you removed the leaves.  Not sure how the Glass Glitter would hold up around the heat, but you'd have a lot of burning time before that! 

Make Your Own Stamped Candles: It's easy!  You simply stamp your images on tissue paper, lay your tissue on the candle, wrap wax-paper around the whole candle, then heat the wax paper and tissue paper with a Heat Tool until it melts into the side of the candle.  Visit Splitcoast Stampers for a complete tutorial: Stamping On Candles.
