Decoupage on candle
Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it. Commonly an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers.
In this case i have used paper napkin onto candle.
To do this you only need a white candle, white glue (it becomes invisible when it gets dry), a brush, scissors and a paper napkin with the colours you want. After you cover the candle with the glue, you apply on it the first layer of the paper napkin. We only use the first layer of the paper napkin, the one with the colours (paper napkins usually have two or three layers). You have to let it dry for a while because, at this stage, the napkin is very delicate and it can easily be torn. Once it'll gets dry you, you apply another layer of glue all over the candle and let it dry very well.
In the end you have a beautiful candle decorated the way you want it to be.
My candle may not be that beautiful but it's colour matches with the rest of the construction in which it's going to be used
