I wanted my candle to look wintry once it was completed so I went with a Vanilla candle. This is so simple to create that I didn't do a video for it.
1. Pick a candle any size and color.
2. Cut a piece of Glimmer Paper Silver 1" Wide and the length will depend on the candle size you have. Wrap it around the bottom and attache the ends of the Glimmer Paper together with Sticky Strip.
3. I used the Big Shot and the Leaves #2 Die. I die cut out leaves in Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I did enough to go around the candle. Again it will depend on what size your candle is. I then ran each leaf through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I sponged Soft Suede ink onto the Very Vanilla and Soft Suede leaves. I sponged Pool Party ink onto the Pool Party leaves. I stuck each leaf on with glue dots. I then ran a piece of 3/8 Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon around the bottom of the leaves, I attached the ends with Sticky Strip. I took one of the Spice Cake Designer Buttons (Pool Party) and attached lengths of 3/8 Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon that I folded over to create a bow. I used the Big Shot and the Northern Frost Die Strip to die cut out one snowflake in Very Vanilla. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede and then attached to the center of the button. I added a Jewels Basic Rhinestone to the center of the snowflake.I then sprayed the candle and decorations with Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer.
4. For the mat I used the Big Shot and the Scallop Circle Die; I die cut out a piece in Soft Suede. I then ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I sponged Soft Suede ink all over.
Now you have a decorated center piece or to place anywhere. I got the candle at a dollar store. This can be made for any time of the year or to match some of your decor in your home! It also would make a great gift for a friend, coworker and etc. The total cost to create this once finished was $3!!!!
