Christmas Tree Candles

These are the Christmas tree candles I was telling you about yesterday. So simple to make. By chance you may have tons of unused craft supplies stashed away from other craft projects like me. Here is a way to use some up today. Mini clothes pins & spools stained. A drill & small drill bit to open the spool holes just a little bit for the candles you will use. Scrap muslin cut & tied around the spools (two each per spool). Glue to attach the spools to the end of the clothespins. Birthday candles to insert in the spool holes. I would love to find black birthday candles. But for now these will do. Now clipped to the branches of the homestead Christmas tree. So pretty & old fashioned. For safety I will not light them & burn them. Just another prim pretty for looks!

Blessings Til Next Time.
