Some of you may know that I'm going to be doing a craft show again this August. I've had since last years show to work on things and I haven't done very good. I have lots of ideas but just can't get myself going to get anything made.
I did have a very short roll last weekend and made some grubby candles.
I don't have any fancy equipment just an old pan and a baked bean can. I melted down some old candles that were the right color that I was looking for. After the wax was melted I moved the whole pan to the sink and close to where I was going to be dipping.
I bought these plain white emergency candles at the dollar store. I dipped them in the wax then rolled them in a mixture of spices then repeated it one more time and laid them on the wax paper
I thought they looked pretty good and I even tried it with a votive candle. I really liked how that one came out but it wasn't quite as easy to dip down in to the can.
Now I need to decide if I want to package them in twos or threes. I'll wrap a piece of fabric around them with a tag. Which would you prefer 2 or 3?
I would have made more of these but this was all the candles I had to dip. I made a trip to the dollar store and got more of the emergency candles so now I need to get my act together and get busy.
