Intro: DIY Printed Candles
Achieve the look of french boutique inspired printed candles with this DIY!
What you need:
White or Ivory candles; tapers or pillars
Non-toxic Ink pad (tip: pigment based ink works better, however for health reasons due to burning, it is best to use a non-toxic ink)
Large printed rubber stamp (tip: the less ornate the pattern the better)
1) Gather materials
2) Turn the stamp on its backside, rubber side up and evenly spread the ink pad across the stamp (tip: wiping it across the stamp works better than pressing down)
3) Slowly, and pressing as evenly as possible, roll the candle across the inked stamp. Take time to properly line up longer tapered candles as it will take more than one roll.
4) Carefully place to the side and let dry. Be careful – these will smear at first until they are fully dry, particularly if you are using a washable/non-toxic ink.
And that’s it! Now use as a part of your wedding (or home) decor!
