Cookie Cutter Candles

I found this project in Rosie O'Donnell's new book, Crafty U. So if you are looking for a new craft or something new to decorate your bathroom with, then here are the instructions:

Materials:

Cookie Cutters
Sheets of colored beeswax
Pillar candles of various sizes
Tacky Craft Glue
Sewing Pins or Map Pins (with balls at the ends)

Directions:

(1) Using cookie cutters, cut shapes of different colored beeswax from the sheets of beeswax.

(2) Apply shapes to candle using tacky glue. Secure shape with pins.

(3) Check for any drips during drying time.

(4) When completely dry, pull out pins.

Blogger Note: I tried this project. And I found that you need to use plenty of glue for the beeswax shapes to adhere of they will come off easily. I used Elmer's glue and I would recommend finding something that would be more tacky and that would not cause potential danger when burning the candle.
