Transfer a photo onto a candle

candle_transfer_1_ArtCC_watermarkGrab a candle and get ready to create a work of art, a pillar candle like the one shown here in the picture works best to place your design on. You can cover a little bit or the whole candle with flowers, music notes or your favourite shapes and colours to match your décor, you could then cover that with homemade mod podge, or a decoupage medium, or just melt the transfer on like I did.

Use your own color printer and personalise your candle with clipart or pictures. These are beautiful candles, you can make your candle as personal as you want, this was designed on a computer using photoshop. Enjoy, see how I done mine here on this Youtube video.

Keep coloring books in a small dish-drying rack.
Stack the books like plates between the prongs, and put the crayons and coloring pencils in the utensil caddy

Home made mod podge glue

you will find this glue very useful and also easy to make, it’s 50% PVA glue and 50% water.
Put it in an airtight jar and give it a stir, another way to save money for your art supplies. I only made a small jar because you don;t need very much unless you are doing a large project, either way making your own will save you a lot of money.
