Print Your Own Halloween Candles

What do you need?

  1. Pillar candles
  2. Tissue paper (or paper napkins)
  3. Inkjet printer and paper
  4. Glue stick
  5. Scotch tape
  6. Hair dryer

How do I create my candles?

STEP ONE

Cut the tissue paper a few inches smaller than the printer paper and then scotch tape the tissue or napkin to the paper. When you are finished, run an iron over it a few times on the lowest setting to make sure it is perfectly flat. Once done you can then print the image on to the tissue paper.


STEP TWO

Cut out your image. It is advised to cut through both tissue and the paper, this also makes it easier to cut round.


STEP THREE

Wipe some glue around the edges of the design and stick the image to the candle- this helps to prevent the tissue paper from moving when you use the hair dryer.


STEP FOUR

Hold the hair dryer a few inches away and go over the design. The candle will heat up and the tissue paper will begin to merge into the candle. The white parts of the tissue paper will start to disappear and by magic you will have your Halloween candle!


TOP TIP!

This is great fun for the kids, especially during school holidays to keep them entertained! Why not get the kids to design their own pictures, simply scan them in and print them on to tissue paper. The possibilities are endless!
