DOLLAR STORE CANDLES DIPPED IN CRAYON FOR COLOR!


I visited Martha Stewart.com today and found this Brilliant idea!
buy $1 candles from the Dollar store , dip them in melted colored wax to get a beautifull effect!
This will look so amazing as an accent piece in the room . I wouldn't reccomend actually using the candles , it may get a little messy !!

Here are the instructions she gave.




How to Dip-Dye with Tinted WaxMelt the wax in a double boiler or in a slow cooker with a nonstick insert. Let leftover wax solidify, and it will pop out easily. (Wash the pot or insert well afterward to use it again for food.)

Tools and Materials
White pillar candles, assorted sizes, jamaligarden.com
Bleached beeswax beads (for melting), sculpt.com
Double boiler or slow cooker
Vegetable peeler or knife
Crayons, in various colors
Wooden spoon
Taper candle
Ceramic plate or baking sheet

How-To
1. Place wax beads in a double boiler or a slow cooker, filling about a quarter of the way. Melt wax, adding more chips for a higher wax line.
2. Use vegetable peeler or knife to shave bits of crayon into wax (totaling about a quarter of a crayon). Stir to blend. Let any bubbles settle, and dip a taper candle into wax to test the color (once beeswax dries, it can be broken off, so you can use the taper for the next batch). Add more shavings for darker color. Remove wax from heat.
3. With a slow, even motion, dip base of 1 pillar candle to the desired height. Hold candle in melted wax for 5 to 10 seconds; remove, and set candle, tinted end down, on plate or baking sheet to dry (once wax hardens, the candle should be easy to remove). If making multiple candles, return wax to heat as needed to maintain proper consistency.
