Hi everyone! I'm new here but I thought I'd share what I did with some candles a few years ago for Valentine's day presents. I put pictures in the member gallery but I don't know how to get them on here! Anyway I bought prayer candles from the $ store and removed the label. I then covered with tulle using craft glue. Then I embellished with ribbon, heart gems, rhinestones, ribbon roses, lace, basically anything that would stick and looked Valentinesy! You can also use short candles like in my other picture. Tulle comes in so many cool colors the creative possibilities are endless! I must however give credit where it is due, I got the idea from my Mother in Law who made me a set for Christmas, also posted in the member gallery. Hope that helps anyone who needed an inexpensive gift idea. I gave them to my friends, family and childrens teachers!

To get the pics on here, click the picture in the member galleries, then scroll down to near the bottom of the page. There is this little thing that says "UBB Code". Copy the URL that is after that into here, and you're done! OK i couldn't wait so here they are...


So prayer candles are just plain white tall thin candles?

Thank you so much Stargirl!! Yea, prayer candles are the tall skinny ones that usually have a picture of Jesus or The Virgin Mary or other thing like money, love. Your supposed to burn them in hopes of recieving blessings from wichever. Anyway, hope it's not sacreligous of me to take the Jesus label off! But like I said you can use any type of candle, I personally like the tall ones!
