Music Sheet Candles

 I believe Pottery Barn sells candles like these.

  I have been making them for quite a few years and would like to share them with you!  I was able to print off some sheet music onto a piece of tissue paper...courtesy of, none other than
The Graphics Fairy .  Thanks again!.

  I cut the printed tissue paper to fit the candle and held it in place with pins. 

With a heat gun  I melted the wax so that it stuck on its own to the candle.  You can see when the paper is melted on, as the color of the tissue paper changes to the color of the candle.   It's pretty easy to do. 

They make wonderful gifts, especially if you put them in a basket of spa items. 

  I usually put with a bar of homemade soap.  CLICK HERE for the recipe, and some scented Epsom salts, all tucked  nicely in a box or basket.
