We are asking you this month to think of candles and create Flickering Lights. The twist is to have a candle in the item made.
As usual there is a fab prize. This time Susan is donating a..........
$20 (Australian) Gift Voucher for a shop of your choice!!
My inspiration fro you is a Christmas table centre.
I began with bamboo sticks joined together to form a star shape. I sprayed the sticks with gold but on reflection think I should have used silver as the gold on the wood didn't really show up.
I then used two different tea light/mini candle holders as containers.....six in total. In each one a put a small 'oasis' and added real pine sprigs and mini pine cones, from my garden and red and gold plastic berries, which I got from flower accessories department in a bargain store. I also added gold and red mini baubles from my Christmas decorations stash. These were then placed around the bamboo star. A church pillar candle was then put in the centre which I had covered in red gem stone mesh ribbon.
Finally I added a string of tiny lights around the whole structure. I thought that I had bought white ones but when I switched them on they were BLUE!!! (Note to self 'Always read the label with your glasses on!!)
I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I have. Pop over to Unstampabelles (link in sidebar) to see more inspiring 'flickering lights'.
