Introduction: Easy Photo Candle Holders

This is a super simple and cheap gift idea that is guaranteed to make any sentimental person break down and cry. That is if you are using photos that mean something to that person. You can always use non sentimental photos, but I can't guarantee the tears then. Just kidding...

What you'll need:
Glass Candle Holders
Clear Shipping Labels
A Digital Copy of a Photo
Printer

Step 1:

The first step is to get all the stickers off of the glass candle holders. You could just peel them off, but chances are that you'll get a sticky residue. Want to know a trick? Soak them in a tab of hot water. I literally put these into hot water, turned to get the camera and the stickers were already floating in the water. For more difficult sticker you may need to soak over night.

Step 2:

While your candle holder is drying, print your photos onto the clear packaging labels. I got the full sheet size so I could trim the photos to the size that I wanted.

Once your candle holder is dry, put the clear packing label with your image onto the candle holder. Rub out any air bubbles.

Now put a candle in it and enjoy!

Does it matter what type of printer you have?

question, does the pics have to be in black and white or color or does it matter?
