Christmas Candles

I have REALLY wanted red and white striped candles for years, but I haven't found any, except online. So I just finally realized I could just make them myself. I bought two white candles and used red craft paint to paint the stripes on. So easy and fast! I think I will do some with polka dots, and some green ones too. Yahoo, I finally have some now.

Something else I wanted to share. I made eight of these candle blocks for a church project, where we made gift baskets for some members. I think they turned out cute. Here is where we found the idea.

We have our Christmas tree up and the decorations are around the house. Something new I've added this year to our many homemade decorations are these cute pom-poms. I hung them up on the banister next to the garland. I just used fishing line to hang them with and taped them to the banister. Bright and fun!

Pom-poms are easy to make using yarn, and you can find a great tutorial here.
