When you spend a lot of time on pinterest, your list of 'Things To Make or Do' becomes quite long, and after seeing pictures of beautiful Christmas lanterns, I knew I needed one ... or two.
The candles are great. They look like real candles as they are made from wax but are battery operated LED, so I don't have to worry about leaving real candles burning unattended and the timber lanterns won't catch fire. Even better, I bought the remote control for them, so I press either the 4 or 8 hour timer and they turn themselves off. How good is that? I also used rechargeable batteries.
Here's how they look at night.
Just one thing about candles made of wax. When you leave them behind glass on a 40 degree Brisbane summer day, they melt!!!! They are fine in normal temperatures but 40 degrees was just too much.
