But we've got a super quick and easy way to make them look and burn like expensive designer candles! All it takes is a heat gun, cocktail napkin and a white candle.
Simply open up the napkin and cut it to fit your candle. Some cocktail napkins have a loose inner liner and you might want to pull it off. These napkins came from Dollar Tree and the liner wouldn't come loose, so I left it alone.
Then wrap the napkin around your candle and starting with the edge, use the heat gun to melt the wax to adhere the napkin to the candle. Use your fingers to smooth out the napkin as you work you way around the candle.
In less than 5 minutes you will have a beautiful designer candle that won't run all over the place when you burn it!
You can make these for any holiday or occasion - Christmas, Easter, birthdays, weddings, the list of possibilities is endless.
Thought you might want to see one after it has burned for a bit. As you can see, the sides stay up and have a thin layer of wax on them. There were a few drips that came through the sides and I just used my finger to smooth them out so that you couldn't see them.

Quick, easy and Cheap - 3 of my favorite things! You can't beat a 5 minute designer candle, now can you?
Wishing you all a Wonderful Week!
