You can choose one of two kinds of candle holders: the Clip On Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which you clamp on to a branch; or the Pendulum Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which has a stem and a counterweight that you use to balance the holder as it hangs on the Christmas tree. Theres no right or wrong. Pick the model you like best.
To save on cost and time, you can start making your own even as early as June or July. By doing so, you avoid the stress of last minute shopping and cramming. Before you begin your task, you have to list the individuals you plan to give gifts. By doing so, you avoid forgetting someone. Other factors that you need to consider include: Budget - Assess how much money you can spare for the task. If you have numerous recipients and you need more money, you can always allocate a specific amount every payday.
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.
Even with these precautions, some people keep a bucket of water nearby just in case. You can consider doing this for peace of mind. Avoid drafts. Keep an eye on the tree if someone opens a door or window or if you make a fire in the fireplace. A sudden gust could pull the flame on the candles in one direction or another, or it could cause them to flame up or burn faster. Enjoy your candle-powered Christmas tree -- And treat it with respect.
Carefully attach the Candle Holders to your Christmas Tree. Put them on last -- after Christmas bulbs, ornaments, garlands and other decorations. If you are using Clip On Christmas Tree Candle Holders, position them on a limb that is big enough to support them (theyre not heavy) but not so thick that the clamp cant bite into the limb. The Christmas Candle Clips have a swivel base.
Thats not to say, of course, that all homemade candy is easy to make. Some candies are quite complex for the beginner, especially those involving a syrup. A syrup is water and sugar that is simmered to a particular temperature. The temperature you need varies with the outcome you want to produce, and sometimes its easy to get it wrong. And that could ruin the candy.
