I hot glued the pinecones & the candle holders on. It's really meant to be decoration, we lit the candles briefly on Christmas eve but had visions of it going poof, (straw & jute, hmmm?) not to mention hot beeswax dripping on us as we eat. Yikes!
It's such a simple thing but I can't describe how happy it makes me to look at it. Maybe it's because we don't have a dining room, and now the wreath makes me feel like we have a more formal dining space. It adds loveliness to the room and it gives me a little hope of someday having a beautiful dining room in our own house. I also love that it could work all through the winter season, from St. Lucia through late winter.
More last minute Christmas crafts to come.
