Steps to follow for each candle holder:

  1. From the aluminum WireForm® Sparkle Mesh, measure and cut out:
    • Small candle holder: four 4" x 41/2" rectangles.
    • Medium candle holder: four 4" x 6" rectangles.
    • Large candle holder: four 4" x 71/2" rectangles.

  4. Pull two long wire strands from the brass WireForm®. Wrap these wires around the candle holder as shown. Remove the rubber bands.
     
  5. Fold each of the four sparkle mesh peaks downward as shown.
     
  6. Using the Christmas tree punch, punch out ten Christmas trees from the gold ArtEmboss® foil.
     
  7. Carefully punch a tiny hole at the top of each Christmas tree with the 1/16" hole punch.
     
  8. Attach the Christmas trees to the mesh using jump rings and needle nose pliers, as shown.
     
  9. Add tea candles to each candle holder for a beautiful holiday display.
