Good Friday everyone…

ok...i finally figured out how to do these fancy music wrapped candles that are becoming so popular everywhere.  and, i spent a whopping $2.50!!  i bought a two pack of regular candles from the Lobby (my personal slang for Hobby Lobby) for 4.99.  a bargain compared to what these babies retail for….

so….

first:  dig out the oh-so-ancient-i-haven’t-used-since-1994 heat gun

come on…you know you have one somewhere….if not, you can buy one at your local hardware/craft/hobby store.  they are actually inexpensive and will come in handy on other projects.  i found this element key to the project as the heat gun allows for an even, smooth surface on your candle.  also, it prevents bumps on the surface caused by using glue or other adhesives (like i have seen on similar projects).

second: copy/print out your image on to tracing paper

yes, tracing paper.  it works better…
