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.
