Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.
Poinsettias and candles say Christmas time to me so for my project today I combined the two.
Candle - mine was light pink to start with so color doesn't matter
Alcohol Ink - I used citrus
Plastic - this needs to be bigger than your candle - I used the plastic from an old Cricut mat but you could use plastic warp, a grocery bag, acetate, anything that the ink will sit on top of
Start by placing enough ink on the plastic to cover you candle. My candle was a 3" pillar and it took less than a teaspoon of ink. Roll you candle in the ink giving it a solid base coat. Let dry.
Once dry drip 1-2 drops of ink down the side of the candle. I only used one color but you could use as many as you want. Let dry.
