Fourth of July Candles
To complete the candles, you will need:
1 tall white candle
1 medium red candle
18" of a blue plaid (or other blue and white design) ribbon, and 18" of 1/8" blue satin ribbon
2 star charms
blue tissue paper
hair dryer or heat gun (follow the directions for your gun and don't get burned!)
For the white candle:
Cut stars of various sizes out of tissue paper (I printed some stars from my computer for a pattern.)
If you have a star punch, use it!
To apply the stars, you can either lay the candle on its side and rotate it or stand it upright. Either way, be sure to put something under it to collect any drips. Start heating up one small area with either the blow dryer or the heat gun. The blow dryer could take a couple minutes for the wax to start melting.
Happy 4th of July!
PS-When burning the candles, make sure the tissue paper doesn't get near the flame.
