Let it shine – decorative candles for a good start into spring

Step 1

A quick and easy decoration idea is to print a candle with our COLOP e-mark create. To make it even more beautiful, you can use dried flowers. Interested? Then take this shopping list and start your DIY project today:

  • bright candle (size is up to you)
  • dried flowers like fern, lavender, daisies
  • a tea light
  • paintbrush
  • scissors
  • lighter
  • natural cord
  • COLOP Ribbon
  • COLOP e-mark Endless Label transparent
  • COLOP e-mark create Ruler

Step 2

Then you can start. Carefully light a tea light and let it burn for some time until the wax is completely liquid. Take a brush and place your dried flowers on the desired spot. Carefully dab the liquid wax from the tea light onto the dried flowers. Practice makes perfect - but you can do it!

Step 3

If you have decorated your candle with pretty dried flowers, it may be that one or the other place still looks a bit bumpy. But that's no problem! Just take a lighter and run it carefully over the uneven spots. Use your finger to smooth them out.

Step 4

Once the wax is completely dry, it's time to start printing! Finally! To do this, take your smartphone as usual, open our free app and connect it to your e-mark create. To make the print nicely visible, it's best to use our COLOP e-mark Endless Label transparent.

Step 5

The easiest way is to print on the Endless Label with our COLOP e-mark ruler. For advanced and real DIY heroes: Printing directly on the candle also works without any problems.

Step 6

A beautiful spring saying immediately brings a good mood into your home. How great your new candle looks now. You can of course decorate it with our COLOP e-mark Ribbon or use other decorative ribbons that make your heart beat faster.

Step 7

By the way: This DIY candle is also a great gift for your loved ones! We wish you lots of fun with spring crafting.
