Like soft music and fresh flowers, candles are a great way to set a romantic mood for any occasion.
The glow of candlelight creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for a holiday celebration, a dinner party or just an evening in with someone special.
You can add the romantic glow of candles to almost any room in the house with a full-color, 35-page guidebook, "Candlescaping."
The book's more than 40 projects will transform ordinary, ready-made candles into dramatic mood lighting, beautiful centerpieces and more. Each project includes a materials list, complete instructions and full-color step-by-step photography where necessary.
Designs range from simple to complex. For instance, it's easy to add flair to the holiday table with the elegant "Cranberry Christmas," below.
Required materials include a bowl, seven mini ivory floating candles and some fresh cranberries.
Simply fill the bowl with water, float the candles on top and add the cranberries until the surface is completely covered.
Other designs include "Cinnamon Christmas," "Christmas in the Woods," "Peppermint Pleasures," "Advent Wreath," "Down by the Sea," "Valentine Romance," "Tea Party," "Winter Elegance," "Patio Party Lights" and 33 others.
The "Candlescaping" guidebook, No. DO5126, is $11.95.
You can find more than 20 fun-filled holiday gift projects in 36-page guidebook "Heartwarming Gifts," No. LA3375, available for $9.95.
