This is what I did with mine. Kinda of a long story, but I'm sure you can relate. I originally saw these star candle holders in a country sampler in someone's house and I did everything but call the owner to track them down. LOL! My DH even tried making me some with some metal but we just couldn't get all the detail and aging without the proper tools, bless his heart. However, I made a trip to the farm store one day and there were my candle holders. They had an insert for a tealight that I removed so I could put my jar candles in them. Now, I just put these battery operated candles in them. The best part is you put your D batteries in them swith them to timer and they turn them on when you want them to come on say around dusk. Then never touch them again, just wait and they'll turn on all by themselves the same amount of time the next night. I think they stay on for 6 hours and off for 18. I just love them. The best part is coming home late and they're waiting for you, to welcome you home.
Here's a closeup of them, I bought the ivory color and they're about 4-5 inches tall. It's made of real wax and actually looks like a wick inside. It flickers like a real candle too.
Here's a close-up of the bottom.
I'm going to get some similiar ones for my windows, I need at least 12 just to cover the front windows of my house. Yikes! I'm trying to get ones with timers like these with either a black base or a pewter base.
Happy Decorating Ladies,
I'm tired after all my decorating today. Pictures are coming soon, I promise.
