Finished Christmas Table Displays

These table displays were made from twigs from my overgrown Ivy in the garden. The homemade candles were then glued into holes drilled in the mini logs and finished off with some paper holly leaves and clay berries.


My attempt at miniature candles

I decided to try and make some miniature 12" scale candles for my Christmas table displays. To start with I melted some candles in a tall narrow jar over some boiling water. Then some needle thread weighted down with fishing lead weights was dipped repeatedly into the hot wax. This process needs to be done quickly but smoothly until the thread starts to get coated with wax. These are then hung over a wooden rod to set.


Not bad for my first attempt, the finished table display will follow in the next blog.
