Candle in glass jar
Flame safe paint (I used Liquid Leaf before realizing you shouldn't use it near flame...oops. Learn from my mistake.)
Tape (scissors if necessary)
First, tape off a triangle, resembling an abstract-ish harp shape.
Paint the triangle with your flame safe paint. You might want to use a paint brush that you don't mind throwing away, in case the paint doesn't want to wash out.
Allow to dry and remove tape.
Touch up the paint if necessary (especially if you tried to scrape strings onto it and it didn't work #oops) and enjoy!
Take pictures and edit them to try to make everything show up ok. :) Alright, that part's optional.
Remember to never leave candles unattended and to be careful around flame. As with all posts, try this at your own risk and if you're a kid, get a responsible adult to help you! Again, make sure to use flame safe paint and/or use a battery operated candle.
