Make sure it is in a positioned where nothing is above the flame could catch. Start by lighting the highest candles first and then work your way downward. When youre ready for the special moment, take your time and dont rush. Dont try to light as many candles as possible with one match. If your match is getting near the end, blow it out and light the next few candles with a new match. Step back and take stock again when all the candles are lit.
To add the final touches, feel free to add other stickers or embellishments that you have on hand. Keep it simple as as we dont want to take the attention away from the kids artwork in itself. You can also add a border around the edge of the card. And there you have it, the cutest Christmas cards, and the most original, you will see because they are handmade by you and your kids. Those receiving these cards will love them. Remember to take photos of the kids making the cards and of the cards themselves to remind the kids of the fun you had.
Are all the candles secure and vertical? Are they well out of range of anything that could catch fire? Replace the candles as needed during the holidays. Use common sense and dont take risks. Never leave the room when the candles are lit - even for a minute. Christmas Tree Candles are not a 24/7 decoration so its best to light them periodically through the holidays when you know you will be on hand to enjoy them and you plan to stay. This might be a party, a family evening around the tree, or Christmas morning when you open presents.
Its not hard. One of the best ways to step back from the brink, slow down and restore some sanity to the holidays is to ditch the electric lights and LED Christmas lights and go green. Replace your energy-gobbling lights with Real Christmas Tree Candles. Or use fewer electric lights and add Christmas Candles. Either way, you wont regret it. The sight of your Christmas tree awash in the natural glow of real candlelight will stop your friends and family in their tracks and make them go weak in the knees. Its radiant and indescribably beautiful.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.
Incorporate some of these ideas for updating your Christmas decorations and youll be well on your way to a happy and beautiful holiday season. Simple updates like holiday accent pillows, a new holiday figurine or holiday mugs in your kitchen can really make a difference in your holiday decor.
