Let it shine – decorative candles for a good start into spring
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
- natural cord
- COLOP Ribbon
- COLOP e-mark Endless Label transparent
- COLOP e-mark create Ruler
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
By the way: This DIY candle is also a great gift for your loved ones! We wish you lots of fun with spring crafting.
