This candle garden grew from some gem shaped candles my mom bought me.  I found some more of these candles at the dollar store and I put them together into this gems arrangement.  The round trays on the bottom were given to me by my mom, she picked them up because they were pretty and she thought I could use them for something.  There are glass gems in the arrangement as well; these are decorations for votive holders that were supposed to be for Christmas candles.  This one looks really nice and is very colorful and interesting to look at……but it did not burn well unfortunately.  I should have seen this coming; they won’t burn well unless they are set so the wick is pointing straight up.  So I actually liked this one better before it was lit, once lit its pretty clear things did not work out.  So another lesson learned.
