Such a great easy project.
This is awesome! Thanks for sharing.
Does it have to be an inkjet printer?
This is such a creative idea! Definitely going to be trying this for all the fall candles!
I was wondering, is it safe to burn the candle? I love the idea. Your imagination is your palette.
Yes! The tissue paper is essentially IN the wax, and it causes no fire threat!
Thanks for this … I did this a few years ago for my grandaughter’s Christening. I had printed and made the invites, envelopes etc myself, and printed the same ‘teddy’ onto the tissue paper – and added her name and date of Christening…. and melted it with the dryer until it was ‘one’ with the candle .. so pretty and so simple ! Everyone loved it ..
Hi there I have done this several times however I don’t use the wax paper, do you need to use this to seal the candle or can the candle be made without?
If you use the wax paper, it will seal a layer of wax over the candle and make it look like the image is actually part of it. If you don’t, it’ll just be paper on top of a candle. Either way works!
Can This be done with any kind candles or does it have to be a certain kind? I.E. Paraffin, beeswax, soy, etc?
I would think it would work just fine on any wax candle with a smooth outer surface. Otherwise the texture would be disrupted by the melting heat.
And can they be scented candles?
