Decorating Candles with Beeswax Designs. November 7, 2012
This is basically elves labor, to surprise the kiddos at our upcoming December Winter Festival. Please plan excuses ahead if you have a hyperlexic toddler who reads this page and question things!

Working in a group, we influence each other subconsciously. The sight of this beautiful celestial blue starry candle at the end of the table led me to emulate. Soon, there were two, then three starry sky candles in prussian and cobalt blues.
Star shaped spring-loaded cutters…
You can find spring-loaded cutters in many shapes online.
You can find beeswax and other crafting supplies we used today at the school store, The Company of Angels.
Children are amazing gifts. We as adults ponder and have to learn how to love unconditionally, yet for children, they naturally love unconditionally, with all of their being, without questions or hesitations.
There was an unspoken point in the collective’s development, when suddenly molded cutters were set aside and a more freehand process broke free.
Were our artistic complacencies roused by Kimmy’s fox in the snow?
…behold, the glorious little beeswax decoration angel made of left over bits of beeswax pieces in this color and that, emerged triumphantly admist his genteel mold-generated counterparts, its golden crown sings of the foundry of tearing, pinching and kneading in heated hands.Rachel and Julie recycled leftover beeswax bits into this beautiful angel (front, center).
These decorated candles will delight the children in our Winter Festival 2012 Elves’ workshop where children get to “purchase” their favorite handmade Christmas treasures with tokens.
Come join us next week… we will be needle felting birds and decorating more candles!
