Personalized Holiday Candles {tutorial}

This post is brought to by Happy Crafters.

Hello! How are you? Are you ready for the weekend? We have a full one coming up! My daughter made All Region Band. So she is busy getting ready for a concert on Saturday. We are so proud of her. We also have our Nativity & Noel exhibit at church. Four of my nativities will be there on display. Annnnnnd Christmas is right around the corner! Eek! I’m not quite ready yet. ;) We love taking gifts to our neighbors & friends during the holidays. I love giving these holiday candles that I personalized with some Happy Crafters vinyl. They are simple, affordable & turn out beautiful. So keep reading to see how to get started. :)
 
Holiday Candles at GingerSnapCrafts.com #DIY #easygiftidea #vinyl #happycrafters
 
You'll need a few supplies to get started:
gold matte adhesive vinyl
white matte adhesive vinyl
transfer tape
Silhouette hook tool
scissors
this image, this image & this image from the Silhouette online store
candles
 
First you will open up the images in your Silhouette software. Measure your candles so you'll know how big or small you'll need to cut your vinyl. Re-size your images as needed.
 
 
Next send your images to your Silhouette to cut.
 
 
After your vinyl is cut remove the excess vinyl by carefully pulling it away from your design.
 
 
Your piece of vinyl will look like this.
 
 
Use your Silhouette hook tool to remove any small pieces of vinyl like the inside of the o.
 
 
Then put a piece of transfer tape on top of your design.
 
 
When you buy your candles make sure your candles have an easy peel label.
It will make this project much easier! ;)
 
 
Remove your candle label, & then apply your vinyl lettering. So pretty!
 
 
These turn out so simple & beautiful!
 
 
These are definitely an easy gift idea that your friends & family will love!
