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:
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.
Set the kids up with their artwork and old cards and get them to cut their work down to a size that will fit neatly onto your card. If you are using a standard card size of 148mm x 105mm (A4 cut in half, then folded in half) a square of 90mmx90mm will fit nicely. Accuracy isnt important; it will add to the overall charm of the cards. Get a pile of these and keep the leftover pieces too - they can be used to create a collage.
The main focal point of the holiday season in any home is normally the Christmas tree, so updating your Christmas decorations for your tree can really bring a whole new life to holiday season. Sparkly new lights, a few new Christmas ornaments, and a new tree topper are just some ideas of how you can update your Christmas tree. Whether you use an artificial tree or a real tree, ornaments are often the most talked about Christmas decoration each year. Another idea is to purchase a beautiful tree skirt that matches the rest of your holiday decor to really showcase your tree.
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.
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.
