This year was my sister's first Mother's day being a mom! Her little sweetpea is 6 weeks old so I wanted to get her something to celebrate the day - even though she is not MY mom!
Then I had the idea to customize something just for her and thought a candle would be perfect. I picked up a sweet smelling one from Target [of course] - I really like their candles because the labels tend to peel off easily and in one piece with out any extra help. I would recommend testing a corner in the store to be safe - that way you don't have to use goo gone or hot water on a brand new candle.
I cleaned the surface with alcohol and created a template on my Silhouette Machine:
Then printed out with vinyl and applied it to my candle:
I used the Martha Stewart Glass Etching Cream that I used here. When it was ready I wiped it off annnnnnnd:
I was super happy with it and my sister LOVED! This would make a great gift for any occasion and cost less than $10!
