This is a simple project, but I love the outcome! Total price of this was about $3.50 TOTAL with epsom salt leftover for some body scrub.
I started with some plain white unscented pillar candles, but any color would do. Since I'm cheap... I mean uh- FRUGAL I just used the least expensive candles I could find. Use a few different heights of candles to give a good visual outcome. (If you can't get the 3 different heights just wait until I show you how I fixed my problemo!) Take out your Mod Podge, scrap ribbon, and buy some epsom salt.
Start by pouring some epsom salt onto a paper plate, tray, or whatever you want to use. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the outside of your candle and then roll it in the epsom salt to fully cover.
Now- if your candles are only 2 heights instead of 3 (like mine) you can do what I did. The final outcome wasn't exactly what I wanted, but that's okay cause I used accessories as a distraction from my flaws. I started by cutting off the top of a short candle.
Melt the wax on the top of the cut candle and the bottom of a tall candle to kind of 'fuse' them together. Then use a lighter to melt the sides to TRY and make a smoother side. As I said- the outcome was NOT what I was hoping for but oh well! Who really cares?!
Arrange your 'snowy' candles, attach a little ribbon with hot glue, and use a few scrapbook embellishments, glass marbles, and whatever you like to make it your own!
I like this a lot because it's not just limited to Christmas, it can stay up through February. I AM IN LOVE with my Snowy Candlescape. Hope you are too!!!!
