Decoupaged candle DIY

Today I'll show you how to make an interesting yet simple decorative candle. You can give it as a gift, use it to decorate your home or find any other suitable use for it.
You will need:
a candle to decorate, white or natural color
a candle to burn
a decoupage napkin
a tea spoon.

How to make it:

Tear off a piece of decoupage napkin big enough to fit the size of candle.
Light one candle and hold a tea spoon by the inner side over the fire. It may become black but we will wash it easily afterwards.
Press the napkin to the candle with the outer side of the hot tea spoon and smooth it alongside the second candle.

You may need to heat the spoon several times in order to decorate the whole candle.
The work is done now. As we "glued" the napkin to the candle with its own wax, it will burn together with candle.
Have fun!
