Non knitting post about candle making

My lovely sister is getting married in May and having her wedding party on their land in Wisconsin – a beautiful wooded 40 acres with an exquisite lou:)

Anyway, because there is no electricity we are hanging candles from trees to light up the night. We spent yesterday evening melting old candles and pouring them into jars with wicks. . . then wire handles were wound around the jars. . . and then opened hangers will be hung over tree boughs and the jars hung from those. . . safe and beautiful and well lit.

Here are photos of our efforts – we made 51 candles!!

Congratulations V & D!
Can’t wait for the wedding party!!
