So if youre new to candy making start with some simple home made candy recipes, and start well before Christmas so that you can have some time to perfect your technique. And if youre out to make a great Christmas gift why not make that special person a complete candy gift basket and demonstrate your candy making prowess. Make a selection of candies, find a lovely wicker basket and some cellophane, buy a nice bottle of wine or 3 and pack all those candies and other goodies into a gift basket. Very few people would be unhappy to get a Christmas gift like that.
Now you have a pile of cards with colourful squares onto front. Add a greeting underneath, using a sticker, stamp or your own handwriting (or get the kids to do the writing, if they are able too) Note: Dont worry if you dont like your own handwriting - no one else will be as picky as you and it will add to the personal touch and charm of the cards.
Christmas time is the perfect time for putting aside the excuses and get into making your own cards. With some planning in the weeks before, making cards doesnt need to be overwhelming, too expensive or too time consuming. And the best ways to make cute cards and use your time wisely is to involve the children.
Make sure you get the right kind of candles. Basically, theres one right kind of Christmas Candle and a lot of wrong ones. The bottom line: your candle must fit the candle holder. Tapers, votives and table candles are too fat. Birthday and candles are much too thin. Dont try to improvise. Order genuine Christmas Tree Candles when you order your candle holders. That way youll be sure youre getting the right thing.
Are you planning to make your own Christmas cards for the upcoming holidays? Are you worried about the funding associated with buying numerous gifts? Worry no more because you can save money by making your own greeting cards. Christmas is not only the time to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, but it is also the season of gift giving and sharing of blessings to friends, loved ones, colleagues and less fortunate individuals.
Do a dry run. When your order arrives, take a few candles out of the box and put them in the Candle Clips or Pendulum Candle Holders. Hold the holders up as if they were on the tree. Does the candle fit snugly? If necessary, bend the tines at the base of the holder inward so they firmly grip the bottom of the candle. Youll get the hang of it. Your goal is to make sure the candle doesnt wobble or lean when it comes time to decorate the tree.
