These day’s it can be hard to find that perfect git to give someone, especially your mother. It can be tricky because no matter how many times you ask them what they want, they will ALWAYS say “oh nothing”… You know what that means. It means I really want something but I don’t want to “ask” for anything. Don’t get me wrong buying a gift in any store can make your mom smile.  Those gifts can get pricey also. I have a much better idea for you this year. Make something that is completely unique and special. Yep, you got that right. We are going to make something with our two little hands.

Good news is this craft can be done in a few hours so if you “forget” to get something you can still tackle that special gift.

We are going to throw some “attitude” in the mix. What? You don’t know what I am talking about! Well I am talking about an amazing product called Craft Attitude. Today I will be using the Décor Attitude.

How flipping cute is this! The one thing I love the most is you can personalize it with whatever words fit your mother. I have included the words I used in this post just incase you want to use them. Let’s get started!

you will need



Once you print out the words (attached below) cut them out. You want to get as close to the word as you can. If you don’t want to use the words you can make your own. I used Photoshop but if you don’t have that, use PicMonkey. Plus it’s FREE. It’s really easy to use and you can choose your own font’s and colors.

It’s very easy to use the Decor Attitude. When you take the sheets of film out one side will be super shiny. You want to print on that side of the paper.  When it is done printing let it dry for about 2 hours. We just want to make sure it’s completely dry. It’s really that simple Jaderbugs.


Once you have all of your words cut out get your glue stick and coat the section you are applying the word to.  I am using Aleene’s max tacky adhesive. This stuff is amazing!


Gently peel the backing off of the word and voila! This is what it will look like. A flimsy piece of film with a word on it.


As soon as you peel the film off of the backing apply it to the candle. Piece of advice. If you go out and get an LED candle make sure you get one that is flat on the surface. I got one that is super textured and it was a little difficult to adhere the film to the candle.  It’s ok if you have a textured one because this is still such a special gift!


Tadah!!! Here is your subway art candle.

FYI: Do NOT put this on a real candle. Only LED.

You can save this picture to your desk top and print it out if you want to use the words I am using. I hope you enjoyed this post! See you in the next one!
