It's super easy! This is how I do it:

Stamp your image on white tissue paper. Doesn't matter if it's crumpled. Color it with markers if desired. You can also do Poppin' Pastels, or Poppin' Pearls or heat emboss (just be careful!!!)

Cut image out. Put a little glue from a glue stick onto the back of your image. Stick it to the candle. (this just helps it to not move around too much)

Wrap candle in wax paper or parchment paper(I prefer parchment). Heat with heat gun until you can see the wax melting through the tissue paper, moving the heat gun a LOT! You can also use a blow dryer for this, but it takes longer.

Roll candle around in parchment paper/wax paper afterwards until it cools. This helps smooth out any drips, etc.

Unwrap and enjoy!
