Materials Required For Adding Pressed Flowers To A Candle
Let us take just two candles for this craft. One candle should be a pillar type of approximately 5” to 6” in height. The diameter can be round about 2.5” to 3”. The second candle should be a votive. Make sure that the two candles are of same color. White or other light colors are just the right ones. If the hint of the candle is too dark, it will impede your other directions-pressed flowers and stickers.
Of course you need some pressed flowers. You may need stickers as well if you wish.
Next take two pans. Use the smaller one to heat the wax in. This one should not be used again for cooking purposes. The larger pan, should be larger such that the smaller pan actually fits in, is to hold water.
And you need a small paintbrush with a flat tip for painting with the wax.
Method To Add Pressed Flowers To a Candle
Another simple method to add pressed flowers/stickers to a candle is that you take a small spoon. Warm it. With the back of this heated spoon, you soften the candle spot where you wish to put the flower. Then you place the flower or sticker there. You do this same procedure for the entire lot of flowers and/or stickers.
Positioning the flowers/stickers with the back of a heated spoon is simpler. But this will work only for smaller flowers and minor decorations. For elaborate designing and decorations the procedure given in the first section of this article is to be adhered.
