Artful Times Challenge 5

For this challenge at Artful Times the theme is Ribbon and Lace so I had a think and somewhere in the back of my mind there was an image that I had seem somewhere on a blog or u-tube but I never kept the link unfortunately. This is my version of it and apologies to the person who made the wonderful one that I saw-much better than mine for sure.

I have had this scented candle on my hearth for ages and we usually only light it at Christmas so it was due for a make over.

The candle is in a glass so I stuck black lace onto the glass then gold ribbon at the bottom and a thinner ribbon on top of the gold. Next I made the embellishment with ribbon flowers, some silk leaves,some other vegetation and a charm. These were all assembled onto a piece of acetate then stuck to the candle holder with my glue gun which has the strongest glue I possess

 Had to wait until it was dark to see what it looked like lit and if it stayed intact-it did so it will be a nice addition to all the stuff on the hearth already.
