Altered Candles

Aren't these candles the cutest? And they are so quick and easy to make.I made 18 of them yesterday in only an hour and a half! Katie Renz has a tutorial on the Clearly i Stamp website. You will need: candles, white tissue paper, wax paper, a heat gun, stamps, and ink. I found my candlesat the Dollar General Store. They are "Vanilla Cream" and come six to a box for $1.50. They smell wonderful! Even the sales clerk (a man) who checked out my purchase, commented on the fragrance! I found littlepumpkin votive candle plates (also at DGS) for $1.00 each. I met my twosisters and stepmother yesterday at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch.Yum! I presented each of them with a small gift bag with six candles and
two plates inside. If you don't want to burn or display the candles they make  great sachets to put in your lingerie drawers.


  1. Wowzers Cat! These are really pretty! Did you get the little plates at DGS too? I'll have to go check them out! Great little gift idea - I swear, I can smell that vanilla! Yum!

  2. Cat, these are really cute. It looks like I'll be going to the DG when I get home. Love how you staged the pix.

  3. Cat they are adorable and my daughter would love that rooster you have sitting there.
