I had fun learning how to make custom candles from Heidi’s blog. I’ve been a fan of Heidi Swapp for years. She took me through step by step in her video tutorial! I’ve always wanted to try this and now that I have…. I have so many ideas I want to try.

I made these for some friends and neighbors at Christmas. I tried different sizes and shapes, but the best part was putting a personalized message on them. I bought the Santas in a digital kit from house of 3.


I had one left and I decided to make a new years candle. If you can’t read it in the picture it says, “welcome 2010,” and has some fireworks in the background. And I couldn’t resist putting a little Martha glitter on for fun. I’m addicted to the stuff lately. I’m thinking I should’ve asked for the big multi pack for Christmas! I’m thinking I need to make Monogramed candles, Valentine, Easter, St Patrick’s Day, 4th of July candles and the list of possibilities goes on.

Anyway, just thought I’d pass on the tutorial for ya!

Happy New Year’s Eve!
