Forget Stamping...This is WAY better!

So, I had decided to do stamped candles for all the moms in our life. And then I came up with something BETTER! I thought...why not have the kids draw pictures and put those on a candle??? BINGO! I hit jackpot! The kids created some lovely projects for their godmothers. I am so happy I thought of this!!! These are candles from Walmart. I think they are about 6" high and cost around $7. I used the same steps as stamping on candles...but had the kids draw with markers instead!

Tell me what YOU think! Leave a comment and I will send some lucky someone a prize!!! Happy creating!!!!

Note: I will draw a name May 12...so check back! I will need an address to send the goodies to!

Hugs,

What an awesome idea!! And this is more memorable than just stamping on it - they have a drawing by their godchild to look at. Way to go!
