Leaf Covered Candles

These are gorgeous . Lemon,mountain laurel and rhododendron leaves work for this project

Melt 4 to 6 ounces of beeswax in a double boiler. If you like tint
the wax using 1/4 inch piece of crayon.

With a sponge brush, spread a few thin layers of wax on the back of the leaf. Press coated side of the leaf firmly onto a pillar candle .

Working quickly but carefully,peel back the leaf, leaving a was impression.
