Altered Candle

Making candles is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time.  They make awesome and inexpensive gifts! 

I stamped the images on (gift) tissue paper and colored them in.  Then I placed the tissue paper on the candle and used kitchen wax paper to wrap around the candle.  I heated it with a heat gun and it was done! Easy peasy!
