I have wanted to do one of these candles for ages but I thought it would be quite difficult so I kept putting it off. I came across this small pillar candle at the back of the candle drawer in the kitchen (my emergency supplies in case of power cut) so thought it would be a good one to attempt this technique. My goodness, this is so easy it's untrue! I can't believe just how quick and easy! I just popped it onto a little silver candle dish and draped a string of silver pearls round in order to take the picture. They are not fastened on in any way which is why they look messy, but obviously I will decorate it too. I will certainly doing more of these. I think they will make lovely little gifts. The image I used is "Little Ivy" from LOTV and I just coloured it with Promarkers. She is so pretty.
Well that's it for today. I think I'd better start thinking about lunch!
