DIRECTIONS for DIY Holiday Prayer Candles:
Use a program like Canva or PicMonkey to design your sayings. Width needs to be about 2-1/2-3″ throughout and not than 7″ lengthy. That dimension will match on the prayer candle so you may simply learn the phrases. But if you wish to get artistic, you may create a design that wraps all the best way round. Use fonts that will probably be simple to weed out. I first tried some very detailed fonts the top end result was not as profitable because the easier fonts.
Save your design with a clear background, it would make the subsequent step simpler!
Upload your design
Go to Design Space and open a brand new venture. Click on add picture after which observe the steps to add your design into this system. Now you’ll be on the step the place it helps you clear up your picture. Anything that’s black will probably be lower within the vinyl, so you really want to take the time to wash up any spots you need eliminated. What makes it simple is it would present your picture in the proper hand nook with what it eliminated. Check the autumn out items in letters like “a” or “e”, and many others…
Click to proceed to the subsequent step, which is one other layer of cleansing up, smoothing the perimeters. This helps a lot! Size your picture on the display screen. Don’t overlook to maintain it only a hair below 7″ so it would match in your candle! When you utilize the Cricut pleasure, you don’t want a mat when you use Smart Vinyl.

It will scan your vinyl to ensure there may be sufficient to suit your design. This turns out to be useful, no mistaking! Click “go” and the machine will lower your design.
Remove the outer space of the design utilizing the weeding instrument. Don’t overlook to take away the autumn out items from the window letters.
Cut a chunk of switch tape to suit, and punctiliously affix to the entrance of the design you simply weeded.
What this does is join the design to the sticky a part of the tape so you may switch it to the candle. Make positive to make use of the scraper instrument to burnish the highest of the tape in addition to the again aspect. You need to be certain that the design sticks evenly and securely to the switch tape.
We’re virtually carried out! Now we’ve to take away the backing of the switch tape. To do that, begin at one finish and hold the backing as flat as potential as you pull it away from the design. Everything has a greater likelihood of staying intact this fashion.
Clean your candle’s floor with an alcohol wipe, let dry. Now rigorously line up the and set on the candle. It’s VERY sticky, so take your time. Once you stick it down, it’s exhausting to raise! You can, but it surely’s finest when you get it proper the primary time…as soon as it’s set in place, use your scraper instrument to rub the design over all of the vinyl. You need the letters to stay to the candle.
Peel away the switch tape, maintaining it as flat as potential. If a letter sticks, use one of many instruments to press it in place. If numerous the design doesn’t stick, change the tape and rub once more till the letters persist with the glass.
