accessories candles:

2. You cut it to fit the paper, the middle of the candles. With a wide brush, paint a layer of Mod hodgepodge of gloss on the back of the paper and the candle area, where you will be putting the paper.
3. You turn to the paper for the decoupage section on the candle. To ensure you RUB the paper with pressure, the paper around the candle, and smooth out any bumps. Let it dry for at least 15 minutes.
4. To seal apply a generous amount of Mod-hodgepodge gloss on the outer side of the paper and you're done. For this step, I didn’t apply, Mod smorgasbord outside the papered area, because I wanted to stay on the painted surface, truly matte, as I wanted to have the paper, the gloss comes of Mod-smorgasbord.
