And since I made quite a few of them, I have been experimenting with how to present them as gifts. I liked the idea of arranging the candles on a modest glass tray with a little beach sand. Then, to make it really special, I added a small conch shell and an air plant. Ta da!!! It's a mini-garden!
Air plants are very interesting and make really great gifts. Especially for someone like me who kills every plant I touch. Black thumb! I will be posting more about air plants this week. Stay tuned.
I think that this little garden would look darling on a patio, beside a big bathtub, or even as a stunning centerpiece on a dining room table.
And once the candles are used up, you could place tea lights in the shells or turn them over and enjoy their beauty.
Wouldn't this make a really fun gift? Speaking of gifts, don't forget the awesome giveaway going on right now! Yankee Candles anyone?
