Make Your Own Stenciled Candles

by Kelley R. Taylor for CreatingHomeDecor

Decorate your candles in a tone-on-tone design using simple stencils.

You'll Need:
Vanilla candles
Stencil Adhesive
White craft paint
Candle Painting medium (we used DecoArt's)
Tools Needed:
Cotton balls
Rubbing alcohol
Sponge brush
Newsprint for protecting surfaces


(1) Spray stencil adhesive on wrong side of stencil; allow to dry till tacky.

(2) Clean candle by rubbing alcohol soaked cotton balls on candle surfaces; allow to dry.

(3) Mix paint with candle painting medium. Center stencil on candle and press till adhered firmly into place on candle surface. Dip sponge brush lightly into paint; remove excess paint by dabbing brush onto newsprint. Paint stencil openings; remove stencil carefully.
