Candle make-overs

I so love the look of a lit candle.

But since I have nine kids and I don't want my house to burn down, I just don't ever light any.

I don't know who invented the battery operated ones a mom of many small children probably but I think they are the best invention ever. besides my leopard print boots, of course

But, I am a cheepo and I just can't see shelling out the big bucks for the really pretty, big battery operated candles.

So, I buy the $5 ones at Walmart and dress them up a bit.

Here are some with a bit o' ribbon and some bling.

Here is one that I added a couple of different kinds of ribbon too.

But, the more I looked at it, the more I was convinced that my candle was wearing a garter.

It drove me batty.

So, I removed the garter, er, ribbon.

Ewwwwww...I did not use my teeth.

Get your mind out of the gutter.


I painted a wooden fleur and attached it to some scrapbooking paper.

Much better!
Me likey!

What a neat and inexpensive idea...I am a candle lover and dressing them up looks like such an amazing idea! Thanx!
