With a title like fake candles--I know you are thinking--Clearly, Jackie has gone off on the deep end!! I love my hurricane candle holders on my mantel. Instead of filling them with small ornaments, I decided to use a red candles. Well, I love battery operated candles. I didn't want to spend 25 dollars on candles. Yesterday, I saw these foil tube things at the dollar store. I guess you put food in them. They aren't tall enough for wine. I thought I can put candles in those. These were ONE dollar a piece. A much better deal than 25 dollar candles.
Grab a battery operated candle, ball up plastic bags. Take the top off the foil tube.
Stuff the bags into the tube
Place the candle on top of the bags
Punch the card board out of the top of the lid and place back onto the bottom tube
For two dollars my mantel looks fabulous!!
