Easy to make keepsake candle

This is one of the easiest crafts I have ever done and it looks so nice.
This is one of my youngest son to show you how to make them.

This is the finished candle

This is ALL you need one nice candle, wax paper print a copy of a favorite photo grab a rubber band and your blow dryer

Tape with clear tape the picture you printed a regular photo is too think us photo paper in your printer. Wrap some wax paper around the candle even up the bottom with your candle. Tap the Use the rubber band to hold the top of paper in place.

You do need to start at the bottom remember you taped you picture on the candle once you get the bottom to stick reach in and pull that tape off. Now keep warming up your wax paper until it covers the candle the wax on the paper heats up and will adhere to the picture and candle.

It looks like the picture was made in the candle, completely smooth. This is my youngest at 9 months

Once it cools off you simply, take the left over paper off the wax is now on your candle and covering the picture. I did try the really cheap candles and they chip very easily and white or Ivory candles work best. The color candles ran.
