Today my post has a Christmas theme as this is something I intended to post the week before Christmas but as I ran out of time they didn't get on here so better late than never. I'm sharing the candles I made to give as small Christmas gifts to some of my friends. I hope you still enjoy seeing them even though Christmas seems ages ago now.

You do decorate your candles so beautifully Carole but you've surpassed yourself with these. All embellished with lots of gorgeousness. I don't know how you find the time. The recipients of these must have been over the moon with their candles.
