easy monogrammed candles.

Here is an easy, fast but cute gift.
You will need:
pillar candle
letter(s) of choice printed
I used 300 font on a six inch candle
tape
pencil
paint
Take your regular ol' candle.
Center your letter and tape it onto the candle...
Trace around the letter with your dull pencil...
hard enough to etch into the candle.
If you enlarge this photo you might be able to see the outline...I doubt it.
I suggest working in bright light.
Fill in the outline with paint...
You could even spell out words...
or give in a basket with a candle holder and matches.

One less gift you have to buy. :)

What kind of paint do you have to use?

This looks like an easy, but totally awesome project!!! I love monograms! I saved it for later, cause I have to make me some of these!!

With all the monogram craze going on, this is a great inexpensive way to do this!

That is very cute and sounds easy, but I have a wobblily paintin' hand so I'd have to be very careful. I'll have to pick up a few candles from the dollar store next time I'm there and give this a whirl. I've decorated candles before but done the using tissue paper or copies and heat gun route.

Crystal, what are your thoughts on glittering the heck out of the letter while the paint is still wet? Do you think that glitter would catch fire as the candle melts down? Just wondering.

I love that! Really simple and cute. I think I might let my five year old write something and then transfer his letters onto the candle. What grandparent wouldn't love that!

What a great idea. Thank you for sharing! I'm picturing all kinds of things to put on the candles as well as the monograms! What a wonderful hostess gift to give.
