Is there a way to decorate your own candles?

Make Your Own Decorative Candles

Decorative candles can be done easily and inexpensively at home. All you need are some basic supplies and you can decorate candles to your liking. To easily decorate taper candles choose some small stickers that will fit on the sides of your candles. If you plan on burning these candles make sure to place the stickers at least half way down the candles, as you can't burn where the stickers are. Place the stickers where you want them and then melt some clear sealing wax in an old pot. Once the wax is completely melted carefully dip your decorative candles by the wick into the wax to “laminate” them. If you have long candles you may have to dip one end at a time. This is perfect for Christmas dinner candles, Thanksgiving dinner candles or just a romantic evening with little lips or Xs and Os stickers on your decorative candles.
