I made these today.  One for playing "dirty santa" at work, and one for a group's Christmas lunch I am going to.  I hate doing two colors and I would not make painting them a habit, but they turned out reasonably well I think.

Those are awesome, nice job.  It makes me want to learn to make candles.

little chips of stuff.  I buy all my candle supplies from www.pennywise-online.com/ cause they are fairly close and I usually get them the next day if she ships out the same day I order, so that's nice.  Pretty much, whatever she sells, that's what I use. 

and Thanks! Smiley

Those are so cute. I've never made candles before. I have always been hesitant because I worry I would screw it up. I think the painted flowers on it looks really nice.
