Floral Candle

Drawing of pale yellow candle with random pansies

Materials:
Pressed dried flowers and greenery of your choice
Pillar Candle (scented and color of your choice)
Decoupage medium such as Mod Podge
Paintbrush
Tweezers

Sample package of pressed pansies Instructions:

Because the dried flowers are fragile, and a lot of handling can damage them,I suggest you cut shapes to mimic the flowers from scratch paper and use the paper shapes to work out your arrangement.

Once you have worked out your arrangement, use the paint brush to paint the decoupage medium on the candle where you want to place the flowers. Gently pick up the first flower with the tweezers and put it on top of the medium. Gently smooth the flower and add any greenery around it. Continue with the remaining flowers and greenery.

Gently paint a cover coat of the medium over the entire candle surface. Allow to dry and paint a second coat over the entire candle to be sure it is completely sealed.
