Love candles and candlelight? Looking for a great new creative craft? Maybe candlescaping is for you! Candlescaping is a bit like landscaping. A mixed-media art, it safely pairs candles with other objects in order to create sculptures that burn with a naturally-lit ambiance. You can fashion scenes and arrangements with unlimited potential! No matter what you do, the results will be fun and filled with personalized charm. Let candle artist and crafter Jennifer Mayer teach you creative design with candles. Learn to make candle gardens to set the mood. There are over 40 ideas here to get you started, and the projects are inexpensive and make great gifts. To get started with candlescaping, you don't need much. All it takes is a few candles to springboard yourself into this new craft. Be inventive with it! You can find candles everywhere in assorted shades and sizes, so don't hesitate to be daring. Keep the colors the same or make them interesting. Pair pillars with a square or round shape. Sculpt a bathroom piece with one candle, or use 25 for a buffet setting. The only thing limiting your potential is your imagination. Aside from candles, the only other requirements for candlescaping are a base and embellishments. You can repurpose whatever materials you want at no cost. Maybe you own some old plates that could be upcycled. Perhaps you have some leftover ribbon, seashells from a beach vacation, old buttons, gorgeous river rocks from your driveway, or even holiday candy. Anything will do, as long as it looks great to you. After you gather everything you need to get started, the rest is a breeze. Use your strengths to produce stunning and unique works of genius.
