In this DIY blog, we will show you how to paint dinner candles with candlewax step by step. This is a simple and fun project you can do at home to give your dinner candles a personal touch. Let’s get going!
- Dinner candles
- Tea lights in different colors / wax pens
- Paper towel
- Heating plate
- Baking paper
Collect all your supplies so you can start well prepared. Choose the most beautiful dinner candles and clean them thoroughly. If there is any glue residue on the candle, it is best to remove it with a scraper or a sharp knife.
To properly protect your surface, we recommend working on a sheet of baking paper. This allows you to easily remove the leftovers that you may spill and does not damage your interior. Of course you can also work on a different type of protection.
Now it’s time to light the tea lights! Wait until they are liquid and mixed enough so you can use the most beautiful colors.
We work with wax pens ourselves, which makes the process just a little bit easier. When you work with these pens, it is now time to grab them and choose which colors you want to work with.
Dip your brush in the melted candle wax and gently apply it to the candle. When you work with liquid candle wax, we advise you not to make too detailed designs, stick to organic shapes.
Do you use the wax pens? Then let your creative mind run wild! Let the wax dry thoroughly between each coat and don’t forget to clean your brush well.
Is your design completely finished ? Then let it dry very well. We recommend doing this for at least 24 hours. Of course you don’t want to have done everything for nothing.
When your artwork has dried for 24 hours, you are ready to add it to your most beautiful table setting! How amazing is it to have your own unique signature dinner candle?
