    That Winter Feeling

    The week 6 challenge for Iron Craft was a "Winter" theme. I decided to try out some fun Christmas ice candles I saw on DollarStoreCrafts.com but with a winter spin to them.
    First, I made the ice candle using crushed ice, a candle taper, a few blue crayons and 1/2 lb of parafin.
    Next, for the decorations! I took another 1/4 lb of parafin an after melting it I beat it to a froth with my electric mixer. Spooned it on and stuck in some decorations.

    I made two using some pieces off a christmas garland, a couple of white glitter ornament balls and a few plastic scatter flakes.
    I think they turned out pretty well for my first try. I can't wait to see how the light flickering through the ice candle will look!
    I wonder if I threw some gree crayons into the parafin before I beat it if it would look like grass? Then I could make some spring candles!
    Well, I hope you enjoyed the craft for step-by-step instruction check out the DollarStoreCraft.com. And if you're looking for some scrapping, the new Mega Kit from Nuthouse Scraps, Lover's Sky is in the store now! It's SO pretty!
