A beautiful and cozy home to us, we are often helpedto make improvised means. So, using dried flowers and ordinary shop wax candles, you can make unforgettably beautiful candles with your own hands that will decorate our nest and give special homeliness and coziness. They will become an indispensable element for a home or romantic dinner. To create our masterpiece we will use dried flowers, cones, twigs, small fruits of mountain ash or viburnum, twigs and everything that will attract you at this beautiful time of the year, as well as a spoon, tweezers and an additional candle. All elements for the herbarium are divided into smallelements and dry. Buy in the store the most ordinary cheap candles, separating the wicks and breaking them into pieces, put in a mold for melting. And for this we will make a steam bath with a pan. To put melts of candles on an open fire is not necessary - they will burn. Make sure that the mass melts on the steam bath. While the wax melts we will prepare the mold for the candle. For her can come up with an ordinary tin can from Pepsi. We will place the wick there and wait until the candle freezes. To do this, it will take 2-3 hours at room temperature. When decoupling, prepare another candle, a spoon and tweezers. Heat the spoon over the candle flame. Then attach the petals from the herbarium to the candle and heat them with a hot spoon. We will tell you one secret - if you see thatsome elements on the candle do not look very nice, then take a candle for the wick and dip it into liquid paraffin. So the candle will be covered with a thin layer of paraffin. Over the old elements of the herbarium you can put new ones in a more successful version. In this way, you can not only hide the shortcomings, but also make voluminous compositions in several layers. There is another version of manufacturingcandles-decoupage. It is simpler, because it is based on a ready-made candle, and you only need to build one or several layers of dried flowers. Leaves, flowers and berries can be added in stages, one after another, as if drawing the first layers on the wall background of the candle. After the candle is ready, it is necessary to give it a little cool and freeze, then cover it with the last layer of paraffin, if necessary. That's all! A candle with dried flowers is ready to use. The candles can be made with the same plan with other objects by implanting them in a candle with a hot spoon. Here, as they say, what fantasy is capable of.
