Tools & Materials Needed:
- Wagner FURNO Heat Gun
- Pillar candles
- Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice
- Pods, cones, dried bay leaves, cinnamon bark
- Aluminum foil
Place items on a clean work surface and be prepared to work quickly with warm wax.
With the heat gun on a low setting, melt the surface of candle. This happens quickly—work on small areas at a time.
Place acorn caps, spices, or cinnamon sticks directly onto the melted wax.
Then, quickly sprinkle the still-melted area with ground spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice. Then, allow the candle to reharden.
Alternatively, line a tray with aluminum foil and fill it with an assortment of ground spices. Melt the surface of the candle over low heat and then roll the surface of the candle in the spices to adhere them to the soft wax. For variations,
apply dried bay leaves or other ornaments.
Mass multiple candles on a tray or platter to make an attractive centerpiece.
