A Candle for Christmas

Unstampabelles always has unusual challenges.  This month is no exception.  Our goal is to have Flickering Lights with the TWIST  to have a candle in the item made.

I took myself off to the charity store and bought myself a small glass container that would fit a white candle I already owned.  I had great success on my first visit. The container cost me 50c. 

Next I chose an almost sheer white ribbon and a pretty dark red ribbon. I glued these together and then glued them to the glass container.

A few years ago I made a whole batch of small Christmas banners. I attached this around the red ribbon. 

Last of all I glued on some Christmas decorative nature items.

In went my candle and voila, it was finished.

What do you think?  Would you like to try it?

Now, just for fun, here is a pic of my 3 year old cat Georgia on top of the Christmas wrapping paper box.
