    Dip Dyed Candles by marthastewart: These dime-a-dozen pillars were dipped in beeswax tinted with crayon shavings. Group candles of different sizes, with wax bands of varying heights, for a striking scene on a centerpiece. Cheap wedding idea!

    Dipping white candles into melted crayons to add color. Clever. REALLY?!?! Imagine how many crayons of ONE color you'll need...now imagine how much it will cost to buy that many packages of crayons. Dipping candles in crayons to add color to cheap white ones to match wedding colors? These dime-a-dozen pillars were dipped in beeswax tinted with crayon shavings. Group candles of different sizes, with wax bands of varying heights, for a striking scene on a sideboard or as a centerpiece.

Put crayon shavings (not too thickly) between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Iron lightly on medium heat between pieces of kraft paper to protect your iron. Stop when crayon shavings are melted and let it cool. Trace & cut out hearts of various sizes, string with silk thread & hang from dowel rod. Try Christmas trees/ornaments or Easter eggs/spring flowers too if you like.
