    • A Mother's Candle

      Turn ordinary candles into shining stars with family photos and embellishments. Print photos or digital designs onto tissue paper and cut out the images. Wrap the candles with the tissue paper and keep it in place with straight pins. A heat gun will melt the wax until it saturates and coats the tissue paper. A hidden brad embedded in the candle secures the flowers.

      Your buffet or dining table will sparkle with these candlesticks and a coordinating candelabra decked out in beads. Make these to put on a Mother's Day table as a warm surprise.
