Christmas Candles

Happy Saturday, everyone!! It's my turn to post on the My Craft Spot Blog and I have a 3D Christmas project to share with you!! Have you entered this week's challenge yet? There is still time to enter your 3D Christmas project for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to shop at the My Craft Spot Shop!!


For this project, I wanted to decorate some candles to use as gifts and to adorn the holiday table :)

For this candle, I wrapped red wire ribbon around the base and used a sentiment from O Holy Night. It was stamped on white tissue paper and then I stretched the paper over the candle using wax paper to hold it in place, and heated it with a heat gun until it adhered to the candle and the tissue paper disappeared like magic :) The hanging tag is a Tiny Tag die, and it was used with a sentiment from Tiny Tags Christmas. The star and snowflake are from Small Alphabet and they were covered with Sugar Coating. Gems were adhered in the shape of a Christmas tree. Vintage Vanilla Crinkle Ribbon was tied around the candle to finish it off.


For this candle, a sentiment from Tiny Tags Christmas was stamped on a Tiny Doily die and tied off with raffia ribbon. Papers from The Paper Studio were used, along with white tulle and Washi tape.


This is one of my favorite sentiments...it's from the Christmas Chalkboard set. The letters were colored in with a gold pen.


This sentiment is from O Holy Night. I am entering these in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art Linky Party - Anything Goes
  2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday
  3. Decorate to Celebrate - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. My sweetest friend, this is the most beautifully festive candlescape ever! I love this technique and you've used it so brilliantly. The variety of sentiments and candle colors are just lovely! As always, your little extras throughout make everything even more inspiring. It's so hard to choose a favorite as I adore every one, but that tall extra sparkly one keeps drawing my attention! They're all so beautifully designed, my super talented friend! An inspired idea and so perfectly executed. This will fill everyone's hearts with a lovely Christmas glow all season long. :o) Stunning project, my dearest Lisa! Have a happy day. :o)
