DIY Art Candles

Make these great looking candles by following the DIY directions at The Gunny Sack.  This site has some kicking DIY projects (for brides-to-be and other crafters).  Start with an inexpensive candle, a computer and printer, tissue paper, glue, an embossing gun and some great clip art (Gunny Sack suggests Graphics Fairy for Vintage Art but you can use anything).  Copy the art, print it onto tissue paper and follow the directions on Gunny Sack's web site on how to apply to your candles.  Let it cool, then wrap for wedding favors.  Great as hostess gifts too! 
Candles can be picked up for next to nothing at your local Dollar Store or acquired using great coupons during the year you are planning your wedding.  You could put your monogram and wedding date on these for centerpieces or use taller candles and use them for table numbers (find some great calligraphy numbers online and go to it!).  The only limit is your imagination (and your ability with an embossing gun and some glue sticks!)  Head over to The Gunny Sack and see all their other fun crafts!
