SewforSoul DIY Printed Candles - Featured at Wayfair.co.uk


I was so excited a few months back when Wayfair contacted me to ask if I would write a craft feature for them and I'm thrilled to be able to announce that my Valentine's DIY printed candle tutorial can now be seen over at Wayfair.co.uk.


If you haven't yet visited Wayfair, you're missing out on a fantastic shopping experience.  They carry a  jaw dropping range of items for both home and garden, as well as hosting a lovely inspiration page where you'll find a myriad of crafting projects from their selected bloggers.


The tutorial is super easy and allows you to transfer any image to plain candles using just an inkjet printer, tissue paper and a hairdryer.


You can see from the photo above that I used LED candles for mine and I just love their soft glow with realistic flickering action.

Don't they look gorgeous when 'lit'?

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog - now I have found yours! The candles are gorgeous and a great idea to use LED candles as the images will never melt down as they would with a regular candle. Great fun!

  14. Love this tutorial, such a great idea! I just tried something similar but have to say, I think your V-Day one's are a winner. Plus the LED candles are a great touch - especially if, like me, you get halfway down the path before thinking "Did I leave that thing on/in/burning..." ;-)
