Instructions for Personalized Candles
Supplies you will need
Pillar Candle (I prefer the flameless but either will work)
Heat Gun
Wax Paper (Yes, the kind used in the kitchen)
Photocopies of family photos, initials, artwork, etc… (This can be in color or black/white)
1)  Cut out photo, initial, etc to fit your candle
2) Plug in heat gun so it is warm
3) Lay photo, right side up, on candle
4) Tear a piece of wax paper off the roll and lay it on top of the photo. Make sure the wax paper is bigger than your image on all 4 sides.
5) Hold heat gun over wax paper and allow warm air of heat gun to melt wax over your image. Let cool
Warning:  You will be addicted to this project so buy extra candles!
