Turn simple candles into a sophisticated and thoughtful, yet inexpensive, gift.
- Wax-coated string
- Wax stamp
Choose a selection of round and square beeswax candles.
Wrap two, three, four, or six in a strip of German tissue or Thai paper. Secure with a dot of glue or some clear tape.
Wrap a large bow or a series of smaller knots around the candles. The presentation makes quite an impact, so use interesting ribbon. Grosgrain or satin ribbon is quite decorative, as is vivid wax-coated string.
Add a small card, and seal the envelope with a wax stamp. Just pour wax onto the flap of the envelope, and press a stamp into it while still soft.
