DIY cinnamon candle

So here is another super easy DIY tutorial ! I’ve made this cinnamon candle before as a Christmas gift to my sister and this week I made one for my own house.

What you’ll need:

– Glue gun

– Candle

– Cinnamon sticks ( about the same height as your candle )

– Ribbon

Step 1

foto s iphone 20122013 497

Heat up your glue gun of course ! and when it is hot apply some glue onto a cinnamon stick, make sure you only apply it onto the bottom so that the glue won’t come in touch with the hot wax and fire when you light your candle. ( I don’t know if the glue is flammable but I am not planning on finding out ! )

Step 2

 quickly apply the cinnamon stick onto the candle and press it steady.

Step 3

Step 4

flower branch

6 Mar

So this is something I made today!

I spraypainted the branch using a sjabloom and then gluwed on the purple flowers which I cut out by hand.

it’s a little rough on the edges because I was just trying it out so I can maybe use this later in a bigger project : my sisters birthday present!  She asked me to make an artwork for on  her wall so I am busy trying out different ideas before I start with the real deal!

I’m pretty happy about the result but I would really love to hear what you think, so let me know!

On the link below is the original tutorial using Photoshop.

http://www.thecollegeprepster.com/2012/01/tutorial-instagram-photostrips.html

Now I am no hero when it comes to Photoshop so after failing over and over again I gave up and used Windows Word ( I know, ) If you know your way around Photoshop I definitely recommend  the tutorial on the blog! Now if you don’t have Photoshop and no idea how else to do this then you can take a look at my steps down here 🙂

You’ll need

Computer with printer / Stanley knife and ruler

The print screen of my steps :

 photostrips word

 Step 1

 Import  a square .

Step 2

Copy/paste the square 3 times and line them up.

Step 3

Go  to the formatting image menu and choose the content which in this case is an illustration,  do this for all four squares and you are ready to print !

Step 4

When printed use your Stanley knife and ruler to cut out your strips, more strips on one paper makes it easier to cut them and it saves paper obviously.

And you’re done !

You can use coloured photos ( filtered by Instagram ) or black and white .  On the original tutorial she made the frames white which also looked pretty cool.
