These candles from Martha Stewart would make a great centerpiece for Valentine's Day or a wonderful gift. I was actually thinking you could make candles like this for many different occasions. All you need are different shaped punches. How about bunnies for Easter or spiders for Halloween? The wax sheets come in many colors. Have fun!
Tools and Materials
Heart-shaped craft punches in various sizes
1. Punch hearts from a sheet of wax using heart-shaped craft punches.
2. While holding a single wax heart with chopsticks, heat the pillar candle and wax heart using a blow-dryer (this will soften the wax heart, causing it to adhere to the candle).
3. Repeat this process until you have attached the desired number of hearts to the candle.
