DIY Paris Rose Pompon Candle

I have had  fun making my own candles lately, and I thought you might enjoy the graphics I used to make this Paris Rose Pompon Candle:

It is a small can we can buy here with pineapple chunks, I buy them for salads. I think they are slightly bigger than tuna-cans, which would be great for this craft too 🙂

I painted the can white with my home made chalk paint, one rough coat:

Then I melted some old candles I had lying around the house, and poured into the can, put some cotton thread soaked in candle wax in the middle and left it overnight to set.

Finally I applied 2 of my Rose Pompon labels on either side with mod podge:

  1. These are sooo sweet and beautiful hun. They´ll look awesome on the gardentable too, and we could use some of that fragance that keeps the moskitos away too, then they would look beautiful and do some great good as well on the same time. Thanks sooo much for the awesome labels here again too, you´re always sooo clever.
