EVERYONE has joined the Flash Tattoo craze. Tomorrow we are going to feature a styled shoot created by Bastille Flowers & Events, coordinated by Coordinated To Perfection that includes a few pretty amazing wedding creatives and some stunning details. They styled shoot incorporated metallic Flash Tattoos affixed to candles and votives. In preparation for tomorrow’s post we have a little tutorial on how you can make your own DIY Mettalic Embellished Votive Candles.
We are all about the details and re-purposing items that you might already have. This is a simple and easy project that takes no more than 15 minutes and it will add a custom, personal touch to your wedding decor.
DIY Embellished Candles & Votives
- Metallic Tattoos
- Moist paper towel
- Glass votive candles
- Step 1: Cut out your tattoo and remove the plastic covering
- Step 2: Apply face down on surface of candle or votive
- Step 3: Hold in place and apply pressure with the moist (not soaking wet) paper towel. Inch by inch move the moist paper slowly along the tattoo moistening the entire surface
- Step 6: Slowly remove the paper backing from the tattoo. Be careful not to touch the tattoo yet. It must dry before you touch it or it may tear
The shoot also incorporated candles wrapped in a metallic embellished ribbon. See the step by step “How To” video below. be sure to check back tomorrow for the entire Art Deco Inspired Shoot!
