Apple Candles

Over at Cute and Some, the showcase challenge this week is to alter a candle. I had two small apple scented candles already, so I thought I would use them. I wanted to glass etch on the first one, because I haven't tried that before. I wish you could see it a little better, but I don't think it showed up great in the photos. Anyways, I used the negative image of the vinyl to do the glass etching. When I finished that one, I decided to use the actual vinyl cuts on the other candle. This way, I did not waste any of the vinyl and I had two different candles. I tied a little piece of ribbon around each of them to dress them up a little bit more.

Be sure to check out Audrey's blog this week to see all of the other entries into this week's showcase and all of her great projects.
