Decorated Christmas Candles


I decided to create something a little different with the CHRISTMAS CHALK plate, decorated candles. These stamps I felt would work in red, giving a real Norwegian feel to them.
Decorated candles would make a perfect gift, they are so inexpensive but add stamped images and they are transformed. I stamped the images with vermillion Archival Ink onto tissue paper and then added to the candle.
I added a felt stag to one of the candles and wrapped twine around the top of the candle adding a double bow for further interest.
Wooden baubles were added to the two smaller candles to add to that rustic feel along with more twine wrapped around the top of each.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

These are just STUNNING! Love them. So my kinda thing. I spent a fortune last year on a pile of these at a certain I shop, bought more so I had some for future years. No need to know.
Brilliant!

They're brilliant, Tracy - I agree with Brenda about the Scandinavian feel - a great piece of home decor.

These are totally fabulous, Tracy. I really love the reds and the Christmas Chalk looks so fantastic the way you have used it here. The red burlap string is a great finish touch!

Hugs,
