DIRECTIONS:

  1. Figure out the general design. (tip: some flowers have a front and back, so make sure you’re gluing the right side)
  2. Add small amounts of glue to the entire backside of the flower.
  3. Wipe off excess glue.
  4. Press to the candle and hold for a minute until it fuses. (tip: use tweezers for delicate flowers or work with heartier flowers)

Wax Pressed Flower Pillar Candle

  1. Cut wax paper to the length of candle.
  2. Lay out design wrong side down.
  3. Take candle and roll wax paper around it and tape.
  4. Use a craft heat gun or hair dryer (high heat, low airflow) and heat the wax. You can roll the candle on a hard surface to make sure the flowers fuse into the wax.
  5. Allow to cool, and then peel off the wax paper.
