CANDLE TUTORIAL!!!!!!

I WAS SERIOUS WHEN I SAID I LOVED THE CANDLES IN MY LAST POST!!!!!! AND I WAS BEYOND EXCITED WHEN KAREN LEFT ME A MESSAGE ABOUT HER COUSIN'S BLOG AND HOW SHE DID A TUTORIAL ON HOW TO MAKE THE CANDLES THAT I WAS ABOUT TO PURCHASE!!!!!!!!

THIS SERIOUSLY MADE MY DAY....WEEK.....MAYBE EVEN MONTH! I WENT RIGHT OUT AND PURCHASED CANDLES FOR UNDER $1, PACKS OF TISSUE PAPER FOR UNDER $3, AND GOT TO WORK!!!!!!!!!

JUST CUT THE TISSUE PAPER TO THE SIZE THAT FITS YOUR CANDLE......LAY IT OUT OVER CANDLE AND USE A HAIR DRYER TO MELT IT ONTO CANDLE (I HAD TO HOLD IT REALLY CLOSE TO THE CANDLE TO GET IT TO MELT THE WAY THAT I WANTED IT TO)

I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH THE CANDLES THAT I MADE!!!!!!!!!!

******
BUT DO NOT BURN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE ARE FOR SHOW ONLY! ******




I SET THESE OUT THE WAY THAT I WILL SET THEM OUT AT CHRISTMAS! IS IT TOO SOON TO DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS NOW?!?!


BROWN AND CREAM FOR THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!

CAN'T GO WRONG WITH BROWN POLKA DOTS! THESE ARE FOR THANKSGIVING...AND I WILL PROBABLY PUT THEM BACK AFTER CHRISTMAS AGAIN! LOVE THEM!

I AM SOOO THRILLED THAT I SERIOUSLY SPENT UNDER $10 TO MAKE 6 CANDLES.....AND I HAVE ENOUGH TISSUE PAPER TO MAKE MORE OR WRAP GIFTS!

I HAVE CLEARED UP ROOM ON MY WISH LIST TO ADD MORE! ;)

XOXO,
KATIE
