Quick Christmas Candlescape

Looking for fast and simple holiday decor ideas?  This candlescape takes less than half an hour to create! 
  1. Measure your candleholders and cut vellum to desired width.  You may need to piece two pieces together in order to get the length you need.  Use an adhesive like Tombow MonoAdhesive to create a tidy seam.
  2. Stamp your desired image using Versamark Ink.  For this project, I used D1483 Glory to God.
  3. Place art over the Craft Tray and sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.  Tap off any excess powder by either firmly flicking the back of the art with your finger or tapping on the Craft Tray.  Use small paint brush to remove any stray powder.
  4. Use Craft Heater to heat emossing powder until it melts to surface of the vellum.
  5. Finally, wrap vellum tightly around the outside of the candleholder and adhere.
  6. Place battery operated LED tea lights or regular tea lights in holder and enjoy!
