Red Christmas Candles

Good afternoon to all my friends and  followers and  a special welcome to my new follower Lorna. So glad you have started following my blog and  hope you enjoy my posts.

Today I am posting the remaining three red candles I have made for a friend. They are more traditional than the gold ones with lots of red and green and very rich holly papers. I always love the reds and greens traditional colours normally at Christmas but with these candles I can never make up my mind. Perhaps I should do a poll!! I'm still waiting for the cellophane bags to arrive when I get them into the bags with the matching labels I'll take another photo. Now for the photo of the red version.

  2. Yep, I love these candles too but if had to and I mean HAD to choose I'd probably pick the gold ones as the slight forerunner for me.
    More decorating, you must be fed up to have to do more but it'll be great when it's finished and you can put you feet up.
    Good luck in the challenges. Your candles would be extremely hard to beat. Debra x
