Summary

Summary

Tall and elegant and tapered, in a rainbow of colors, or twisted into sinuous forms; molded, dipped, floating; made of beeswax or paraffin: candles make any occasion special. Light up your home--or someone's life--with the perfect handmade candle. Here are techniques for a striking variety, and holders (including terra-cotta vases and coconut shells) that show them off wonderfully. Decorate candles with dried flowers, add carved designs, and stamp them for quick-and-easy patterning. Plus: great holiday ideas!
