Flames of Glory
Now Playing: a little something to light up your life
Topic: New Work

Only a few days till Ladies' Fall Craft Night at church. Here is one of the projects I am teaching.

To make this you need: A large pillar candle in a very light color (white or cream), a napkin with an overall pattern, a sheet of waxed paper, a heat gun.

Separate the napkin so you have only the very thin top printed layer. Measure the height of your candle and cut a strip from the napkin the same size. If your piece does not go all the way around the candle, cut another piece (you may have to use a second napkin) to finish encircling it.

Lay the first piece of napkin on the candle, smoothing it to remove any creases and so the top and bottom lay along the edges of the candle. Lay a length of waxed paper over it and pull waxed paper around to the back of the candle holding both ends together so it lays smoothly over the napkin.

Beginning at one end of the napkin use your heat gun to warm the waxed paper. You will see the wax from the paper and the candle melt together and the napkin print will darken. Move on around the candle, melting as you go until you are 'almost' to the end of the napkin.

Wait for the wax to cool and carefully peel away the waxed paper. Lay the other strip of napkin into the blank space, align a NEW piece of waxed paper and complete the melting process. Again, wait for it to cool and remove the waxed paper.

Set aside to cool completely. Then take the leftover napkin (that you peeled away in the beginning) and use it to buff the surface of your candle.
