A Thankful Heart

Today I'm sharing a candle.  This is the first time I've tried making one of these; I've always been a little to intimidated to try.  I'll include the directions on how I made mine.

I used an image from Lacy Sunshine, 'Cider Sticky Wings' on the front and then put a sentiment on the back.  I colored the images  with Prismacolor pencils.  You can click on the pictures to get a bigger image.






These do take a little bit of practice to keep the wax smooth.  The next time, I'm going to try without the waxed paper.  I seem to have the most problems around the bottom; the raffia helps to hide it.

The end result is so worth the little bit of practice that I know I'll be making a lot of these!
