Anyway, I bought a gold leaf pen a few weeks ago at Hobby Lobby without knowing exactly how I was going to use it. Then last weekend, at IKEA, I picked up a $1 candle. And then genius struck. Just kidding. This project is a combination of a few things I've seen around and it was so easy. No genius required.
How the candle looked before.
Like I said, so easy. Just draw lines on the candle with a gold leaf pen. It's not perfect by any means, but it definitely added a nice hint of gold and pattern where there previously was none. Best kind of craft, because you can do it while watching great television shows :)
