Caroline lives in Humlebæk, Frederiksborg, Denmark and is into felting.  Carolyn is a charming young lady and sent me this incredible tutorial on acorn candles made from beeswax.  And she tells us that they do not burn for a long period of time and that she always floats them in water but as you can see in the pictures the effect of these little charmers in a glass cut bowl is a delight to look at on a cold winter night. I don’t normally write about candles but these are irresistible. Do visit Caroline’s blog and make several of these for your New Year’s party and your guests will be mesmerized.  Maybe you could make something similar in a large dried seed pod for a longer burning life. Thanks Caroline for sharing your talent with us.

    You could simply use walnut shells or pecan shells for a longer burning time. You still would have to float them … but that makes them extra pretty! ;-)
