How-To: Monogrammed Candle

Monogram a pillar candle using vintage metal printer's type.

1. Place a metal letter face down on a warming plate for about 15 minutes. (Be careful not to heat metal type too much. You don't want to damage it.)

2. Prop your pillar candle on its side to keep it from rolling. Using an oven mitt, firmly press the letter into the candle.  You may need to rock wide letters to get the full impression.

Tip: You may want to test the letter on the bottom of the candle.  Just make sure that you fully reheat the letter before monogramming the side of the candle

3. Optional: Use Rub 'n Buff to highlight the letter.
