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.
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.
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.
