About This Class

Explore how designer Colo Alonso will guide you in this class to find your artistic side with Birthday Candles


In this class of 23 minutes, you'll learn how to do the 3 different techniches of Birthday Candles, from very, very simple to the last one where you can design your perfect candle.

You don't need any previus knowledge, and also it is a good start to explore the Candle World, you just need few elements that I am sure you can find at home. Don't worry about Paraffin, you can use an old candle or some tealight candles to make this project.

Hope you Enjoy the Class!

Loved this class. Simple materials & great instructions. Now, I can make pretty candles for celebrations. Thank you!
Well taught and very enjoyable- and it looks like I could actually manage it! A project this summer with my granddaughter.

Colo Alonso

Industrial Designer + Wife + Mother

My name is Daniela Alonso, but my friends call me Colo because of my hair color.

My studies of Industrial Design allow me to work in Argentina, Italy and Spain in technical design. But in my spare time I develop my artistic flair, creating my own candles, restouring furniture with decoupage, making origami, knitying, sewing, backing muffins etc...most of these activities I make them with my two kids (8 and 4 years old). They just love to make craft-work as much us me.
