Tilda on a Candle Tutorial

Hi everyone, i thought i would attempt a tutorial for putting stamped images onto candles. I've used Magnolia' Tilda with Cat from the Little Christmas collection and coloured with Promarkers.

  Warning Picture Heavy Post

Products needed are Candle, Tissue Paper and Greaseproof or Baking paper.

Stamp your image onto the tissue paper and colour in. Carefully cut your image out leaving a small edge and place onto candle.

Holding the greaseproof paper tighly around your candle heat it up with your heat tool until the colours appear to show up brighter.

I repeated the process for the stamping on the back of the candle.

I then packaged the candle with cellophane and decorated.

I tied some of my gorgeous roses ribbon prize from Crafty Ribbons, added some real holly leaves, pink poppies and handmade pins.

Around the bottom i added some lace and buttons.

I hope this tutorial was helpful!!

Loving your candle, such a cute image and great idea. You have had much better luck than I did when I tried this technique. I think my heat gun might have been a bit to fierce for the candle as I got a few lumps and bumps on it. Thanks for joining us at Craft Room Challenge and good luck. Julia xxxx
