You may have decided on candlepower because of the look, or because its green, or for any number of other reasons. But safety has to be your top priority. Whether you decide on Candle Clips or Pendulum Candle Holders, make sure you are careful and, above all, use common sense. Here are eight important tips for decorating your Christmas tree with candles:
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.
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.
Our great-grandparents were on to something. They used Christmas Tree Candles and this is how they experienced Christmas every year. Lets say youve decided to go green and use Christmas Tree Candles instead of kilowatts this year. Finding genuine Christmas Candles is not easy, because they basically vanished from the market 90 years ago. But persistence pays off. I discuss various sources in another article I wrote about Christmas lights, but if you want to save time, its easiest to order them from a reputable dealer.
Just about everyone loves candy, especially kids. And anyone who loves candy will really love home made candy. Because home made candy is made with love, and is special. Anyone can head down to the candy shop and grab some candy, get it wrapped and in 5 minutes youve got a gift all worked out.
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.
