Step 1~ Print out the, Footprints, poem in such a way that it will fit on the candle.
~~~Footprints in the Sand~~~
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”
Step 2~ Cut the poem in a way that it will look nice on the candle. You might want to use craft scissors that will leave a designed border, or you can simply round off the edges.
Step 3~ Turn the paper over and paint on a thin layer of Mod Podge. Do this quickly so it won't dry before you have a chance to stick it on the candle.
Step 4~ Center the poem in the center of the candle.
Step 5~ Once the poem is firmly in place, paint over the front side of the poem with Mod Podge as well. This will protect the paper and also leave a glossy finish.
Step 6~ Tie a boy around the candle for looks.
Step 7~ If you also purchase matches, you can tie the matches in with the ribbon so that in case of an emergency, the matches are right there with the candle. This would make a great gift!
