Christmas Countdown - Day 2

Day 2 - So far so good.  I am keeping up.

 So, the other day I was browsing through a local bargain shop and found the really nice candle vases.  My mind started whirling with the possibilities.  Here is what I came up with.

I love the way these turned out.  Here is a closer look.

If you have never made stamped candles before, then you are going to love how easy they are.  To make these I first stamped the snowflakes on tissue paper.  I cut the tissue paper into strips the right width and length for the candles.  I laid the tissue on top of the candle, and using my heat gun I melted the the tissue and candle together.  Be patient and work slowly and it will turn out beautifully.  After they were cool, I spritz with some champagne shimmer mist and then some gold smooch spritz.  I over did it with the smooch spritz, so I went with a wadded piece of facial tissue and dabbed some off.  And, lastly, I added some rhinestones.  Everything is prettier with bling.

All it needs now is a pretty bow tied around them with some Cherry Cobbler seam binding, which I am waiting to arrive.

Thanks for stopping by.
