This project originally started out as the Evergreen challenge but then morphed into much more than that! Very simple and quick to create, and a great hostess gift as well. You can use regular candles, or the LED wax version.
The tall Christmas Tree pillar candle is the real deal wax candle. The images are stamped on white tissue paper in StazOn Forest Green and Blazing Red and then gently fussy cut. (Note, you will want extra paper or a Craft Mat under the tissue paper as the ink WILL bleed through.)
Place the image in desired position and gently heat with a heat gun. Smooth the tissue paper down into the melted wax and smooth edges of wax with fingers. The tissue paper becomes translucent in the melted wax.
The snowman and angel candles are both the LED versions. The snowmen were stamped in StazOn Jet Black and colored with Fabrico markers. The images were die cut with a layer of cardstock underneath to cut the tissue more cleanly. The images may be reversed when applying to the candle as the color is equally vibrant on both sides. The angels are stamped in StazOn Royal Purple and Azure. All three candles are finished with decorative trim or ribbons with bows.
