This is such a great decorating idea. You can use them during the day as your table top decorations and Ho into night using them to light up your patio or deck. You know you will be out side in the dark watching the fireworks. So set the mood for it.

These candle holders would look so,pretty scattered over several tables at a backyard holiday party! Dress them up further by attaching a crossgrain patriotic ribbon on the bottom with glue, or painting some of the designs with glitter paint, or even gluing some red, white and blue buttons or glass gems here and there for extra whimsy! Super fun project and so pretty too!
