Creative Candle Idea February 19, 2009

What a wonderful day it is in sunny Miami, FL :).

As i began my day, i came across this wonderful cool inexpensive creative candle idea, and the thing about it is, it is so easy too do. Items such as soup cans, plastic bottles, and even old clothing hangers that we all throw away on a daily basis can be used to create wonderful centerpieces or hanging decorative displays for any evening event.
