This project calls for some napkins with feather images, scissors, spoon, candles and wax.
Start melting the wax in your chosen dipping can.
Cut the designs out of the paper napkin.
Heat the spoons on a stove-plate. You'll work with one, while the other stays warm.
Position the design onto the candle, and working from the center outwards, rub the hot spoon over the design, melting and fixing it onto the candle. Go over it again and again, eliminating all air bubbles.
When the dipping wax reaches 93°C, (199°F), submerge the candle slowly, keep it in the wax for 3 seconds, and pull it out quickly.
Warm an old pan up on the stovetop, and neaten the base of the candle in it.
We adore the fabric wrapped hangers, they're so cheery and cute.
Make Christmas hats from your old sweaters. Really cute and easy to make and the little ones will love them!

What you need:
Round cork mats in various sizes
Leather scrap pieces big enough to use for pocket(these were found at my local fabric shop)
Small upholstery tacks
1/2″ wide Leather strips
Hot glue and a hot glue gun
Who says that pen can’t be glamorous with feathers? There’s something fancy about a quill pen and sometimes fancy is just what is needed to inspire great writing or (let’s be real) doodling. Best of all, because they are so easy to make. You can use all kinds of material like lace, silk, fabric scraps or anything you desire!
