Boxing Day Candles

Well after all the preparations and excitement the day has passed I hope it was a good one for you all.  For me yesterday was a perfect day!

Had a project all lined up for the holiday but just did not fancy doing it when it came time.   Knowing I had yet to enter the Gingersnap's  
Candelabras, Chandeliers and Candles Challenge. When doing Saturday's Feline list Just for Girls make a sleeve for a pillar candle also caught my attention.

Don't happen to have a pillar candle to hand but in famous kitchen draw there was a packet of 5 regular candles and 4 sticks of cinnamon sticks. Bundled these together with a black raffia bow then melted wax crayon's, with a heat gun, to drip down the bundle and over the bow. Made a wrap with blue cellophane, and then cut some yellow cellophane with a jagged top and with slots in the piece to suggest flames. Cerise holey ribbon (great for oozing FP) with another ribbon threaded through tied around the base.    A little gem topped pin tops of the ribbon knot.



Sharing this with Sparkles Forum Challenge Anything but a Christmas card.   Enjoy Boxing Day everyone.

  2. How clever, bundle of candles, wax crayons, rafia and cellophane, now if you had given that to me as a list of things to use I don't know what I would have done, but this is fabulous Zoe.
    Glad you had a good Christmas day and enjoy Boxing Day too.
