Christmas Candles

Click picture to enlarge!

Just a little post. I made several of these sweet candles. I bought the plain/clear candles at the 99 Cents Store, printed out pretty graphics from my stash, added a tiny wire handle if I want to hang them and then embellished them. I even sprinkled glitter inside the candles! Here are 4 on a table in my front room. They look so pretty lite up! xox

Thank you for another idea I can copy. I think I am the Queen of copy cats! I'm still kicking myself for selling my 1966 trailer. Dumb move on my part. Love the decor in you cozy one!

I haven't seen candles like that at my Dollar Store. You did a great job transforming them. Merry Christmas,

Oh how I miss a good old 99cent store....we don't have them up here, we have "Dollar Tree" but they just aren't the same.
I luv how you re-created your pillar candles..I am thinking this might be a great idea for next year for my 'Advent Candles'
Hugz & Blessings for a Family filed Christmas.
