candle 2The Challenge is Over

The holiday season can get quite expensive.  If you are like me, the gift giving list is a mile long right now. The teachers, secretary, principal, bus driver, postal worker, Sunday School teacher, bank teller to name a few. As you can see the list can grow pretty fast and the wallet can quickly become empty.  Honestly, gift giving during the holiday season can become quite challenging.

Today I would like to share with you this inexpensive gift that will make the challenge OVER for good. Let me introduce you to the Gothic Snowflake Candle Holder.  I created this simple candle holder using our newest Gothic Snowflake Stencil along with White Embossing Paste, Dazzling Diamonds, and the Palette Knife. Oh yes, I used these awesome glass candle holders from the Dollar Store and paid ONLY $1.

candle 3Easy Steps

To begin the process, I sprayed the back of the stencil with Temporary Spray Adhesive.  I normally wouldn’t do this but the Glass Candle Holder has a small bend and so doing this allowed me to securely attach the stencil to the glass and spread the White Embossing Paste without getting any of it underneath the stencil.

Once I finished applying the Embossing Paste, I removed the stencil and poured some Dazzling Diamonds over the wet embossing paste and allowed it to dry. Immediately, I placed all my tools that came in contact with embossing paste in a small tub with warm water.

I wanted to create mine to decorate my home and so I placed a small candle inside, but you can also fill it with candy or anything else. Then, just place it inside a pretty clear bag and add a metal embossed tag using the same stencil. Did you know you can Metal Emboss with Stencils? Check Out this video HERE.  Make sure to order the No More Shims Embossing Mat so you can emboss with your stencils.
