Susan's Tip: It is easy to attach Dazzles to candles! To create the stacked effect, I added the smaller medallion dazzles to paper, cut around the edges, then stacked them over the largest Dazzle with foam tape.

Instructions:

  1. Attach the large medallion Dazzle centered on the front of the candle. Attach the next smaller medallion to blue/light green patterned paper and trim around the outside edges. Apply foam tape to the back and attach centered over the largest medallion on the candle.
  2. Attach a flower medallion Dazzle to light green paper and trim around the edges. Attach over the center of the second medallion with foam tape. Add medallion corners to top and bottom of candle, and near the sides of the stacked medallions as shown. Add a swirl to each side of the medallion, and tiny flowers as shown.
  3. Attach the self-adhesive blue pearls to decorate the Dazzles.

Susan's Tip: I used copper mesh to back the flower and wings of the large dragonfly to create a pretty textural effect for this candle. The floral border from the Dazzle sheet is perfect for accenting around the top of the candle.

Instructions:

  1. Attach the flower Dazzle to a mesh square, then attached that to the Humungo adhesive. Cut around the edges and attach to your candle.
  2. For the dragonfly wings, place a wing at the corner of a piece of mesh, then cut loosely around it, then repeat for the other side. Attach to a strip of humungo adhesive, then cut around the wings, making sure not to cut the antennae or tail.
  3. Add the border Dazzle around the top of the candle and smaller dragonflies, as shown.
  4. Attach the self-adhesive amber crystals to decorate the Dazzles.

Susan's Tip: It's easy to add color your Dazzles stickers with these pens. They dry opaque with a soft metallic shimmer, perfect for embellishing with crystals! Be sure to allow your colored Dazzles to dry completely before handling. I let them dry about an hour or so before attaching them to this candle.
