Tissue decal candles


Speaking of tissue paper decals, these decal feather candles are an easy way to update simple taper candles this spring. Use them to line brunch, center a coffe table, or make a gathered bunch to give away to friends.

To make the decal feather candles you will need tissue paper (the kind you sneeze on), an inkjet printer and a collection of white taper candles. See the full instructions and grab the colorful feather download to make your own, over at Minted today!

    tissue paper (the kind you sneeze on)??? I don’t think Kleenex will work. I think you use gift tissue paper, right?
