Select a small stencil shape, such as a Star, Christmas Tree etc. Copy this shape onto a piece of soft card or paper.

Cut out the shape and discard the inner section. Apply a light wipe of Pritt Stick around the edges of the design on the reverse side of the stencil. You may prefer to use Double Sided Tape for this.

Gently apply the stencil to the candle and firm down the edges. apply a light coat of glue to the candle through the stencil.

Allow the glue to become tacky before sprinkling the Accent beads over the glue.

Tips

You can start off using single colours, collecting all the shaken off beads on one saucer, creating a separate multi coloured selection of beads.

An interesting design can be created using double sided tape wrapped round the candle to make a spiral. Try adding an extra dimension to your Candle by using Paper Shape Flowers or Christmas Confetti by simply sticking them to the candle.

Try cutting out names etc to create a special candle for family members who will be absent on Christmas Day.
