I'm sure you have seen candles decorated with everything from cinnamon sticks to rose petals. Have you ever wished you could have one that was a little more personal or ever quirky?
With DIY Alert's celebration candle
project you can make a candle
that says who you are. Cover it with pictures you got from a magazine as the article suggests or make up your own photo
collage to showcase family and friends.
This craft seems to be a fairly easy decoupage
undertaking. All you need is a basic pillar candle, Mod Podge
and your magazine cut outs or photos printed on regular paper. I also think that this could be easily done with children or even on their own for slightly older kids.
Just be careful when you burn your creation. You did just add paper to a flammable object. I really like the suggestion of burning it carefully until you have a deep enough hole to place a battery operated tealight inside to keep your candle forever.
