Waxing Lyrical …..

I came across this interesting video on YouTube for creating decorative candles using plain wax candles and napkins/serviettes (whatever you want to call them). It is really simple and very effective.

I had a go with a few napkins and odd candles I had lying around. I think they are very effective and I could easily get carried away here!

Learn from my experience and don’t do it over your ironing board otherwise you will end up with blobby bits of wax on your ironing board cover and make sure you clean your iron properly when you have finished!! I tried it with my miniature iron which did give more control and was easier to clean. Here are my efforts below – everywhere I go now I see lovely napkins that would look great with this technique applied. Although a bit early I think you can make some great Christmas Candles.
