Guest Post from Danny at Mommy For Reals!

Hello everyone! My name is Danny and I write over at Mommy For Reals. I am a new momma to a beautiful baby girl named Clara Mae. I use my blog as a way to publicly stumble through mommyhood and share my passions: reading, cooking, and CRAFTING!! I offer lots of tutorials and recipes (I promise I've used my family as guinea pigs first!) Please feel free to drop in anytime! Today, I am going to share with you a super easy, no sewing or glue gunning experience required Christmas craft, the Christmas Light Candle Holder. This little votive holder makes a perfect last minute neighbor, teacher, mail man, grocer, or dog walker gift! Pretty cute, isn't it? Materials: Glass globe (I got mine from Michael's) Small glass votive holder (Also from Michael's) Large Christmas bulb replacements (I found mine at Wal-Mart) Curling Ribbon Fabric Ribbon Votive Candle (Mine's vanilla scented!) Scissors Cut 5-6 lengths of curling ribbon about one foot each and curl, curl, curl! Place curled ribbons into the bottom of the large glass globe. Next, add a few light bulbs to the globe. There's no real science here. Just add as many as you like. Cut a few more lengths of curling ribbon, curl, then add to the globe. Place the glass votive holder inside the glass globe. I tested mine out in the store before I made my purchases so I knew the votive holder would fit snuggly on top without falling into the globe. Place your candle into the holder. Now, add a cute fabric ribbon around the mouth of the globe and enjoy! So easy and cute, right?! I hope you all have an awesome and fantastically happy Christmas!
