What can you do with extra candle rings? Make a candle ring wreath Christmas card!
I found some brass candle rings reduced down to CHF 0.75 in the mark down corner of one of my favorite decorative shops. I bought three, thinking I'd take them apart for the bells, leaves and wire bits to use as embellishments.
At home, I got to looking at them and thought one would make a nice wreath for a card. Here you have the result. I wound some beaded thread through it, added some gold pearl beads, ribbon, a button, some twine, created a sentiment with my favorite Honey Script font, and glued the whole thing down.
It turned out rather nice I thought, but the darn thing's so heavy it will cost me a fortune to mail!
