You will need
• White wax pillar candle

• Hair dryer
• Coloured pens

Cut out a piece of tissue paper to size, ensuring it fits around your chosen candle. Print out our DIY candle-printing template and secure the tissue paper to your design using paper clips.
Use a coloured felt tip pen and draw on the tissue paper using the template behind as a guide.
Cut out the design using scissors – a square or circle is best.
Place the design around your candle and wrap a length of baking paper around it, securing in place with paper clips.
Use a hairdryer on a high heat setting and blast over the design for a couple of minutes until you see the baking paper sticking to the wax.
Remove the baking paper and leave the candle to cool down. Give to mum for Mother's Day or a loved one for birthdays or Christmas.
