How to make DIY flower taper candles

What you will need:

  • taper candles
  • Small, flat, fresh flowers, leaves, or ferns.
  • Iron
  • Baking paper

To do:

1. Preheat the griddle over medium or low heat

2. Place a flower where you want on the candle and roll it up tightly in baking paper.

3. Run the iron over the flower for a few seconds, making sure it’s not hot enough to melt the wax completely.

4. Repeat as many times as you like to get the desired style

Once the paper is unrolled, the flower must be glued to the candle with warm wax.

Then repeat with more flowers until you get the look you want and even use some small ferns as well.

Many viewers in the comments were impressed with Dina’s hands-on work, calling the clever DIY a ‘beautiful’ idea.

‘That’s the best trick I’ve ever seen,’ one woman said and a second wrote: ‘Just beautiful! I am definitely going to try this one.

‘What is this sorcery?! So clever! commented a third.

Others weren’t sold on the idea and said the flowers could be a fire hazard as the candle burns down, however Dina said she hadn’t had that problem and recommended them for decoration only.
