Step 1: The Materials You Will Need to Beautify a Candle:

To decorate your candle, you will need:

1. A candle

2. A spoon

3. A tea light

4. A napkin with a pretty pattern

5. Scissors (to cut the napkin into right size)

Step 2: Measuring and Preparing the Paper Napkin

1. Circle the napkin around the candle, and let the napkin overlap about 2mm, and then cut the napkin.

2. Remove the extra paper layers, and leave only the thin one with pattern on it.

Step 3: Transfer the Image to the Candle.

1. Place the paper napkin on the candle.

2. Heat the spoon over the tea light/candle.

3. Start from the edge and rub the spoon over until the wax starts to melt through the napkin.

(When surface is shiny from the melted wax, you can move to the next area.)

4. Keep reheating the spoon and go slowly over all the surface.

Be careful, the spoon is hot. We don't want any burned fingers.

5. Make the top and bottom smooth.

Step 4: Voila.

There are millions of patterns to choose from. Enjoy your summer with flowers and candles with flower theme.

    This looks great. I wish that I had seen this earlier. This would have made a perfect present for my mother for Mother's Day.

    Sure, you can use scented candle, but in order to have a good image result, you might need white candle.
