Clementine Candles nodp

Awhile back, a friend of mine sent me directions for making these candles from carefully skinned clementines. The wick is just a bit of the softer white lining in the skin right at the center. It took me awhile to make one that burned nicely, but it can be done! But, if you make one of these--don't leave the room! It will burn down through the skin to whatever it's sitting on!! Put it on something fire proof!!
Today's revisited painting is, "Self Portrait with Lisbeth's Snow Flake"
Do check out Lisbeth's snowflake mandalas being sold on my sister's Etsy shop, here!
Also Happy Birthday Lisbeth!!!

Those clementines look amazing, Susan! The glow is brilliant!

I never knew you could make candle holders out of them until now!

They look even nicer than jack-o-lanterns IMHO.

Almost romantic even!

Just lovely!

It's amazing that they do burn! Like I said though--don't leave the room before blowing them out!
