My "oh" have been up to wonderful ideas!!!....I wonder if you could scent them is essential oils.
It's all looks so sweet against your chalk board.


What a clever idea. And more black & white-ness for your shoe room.



TypePad HTML EmailOh thank you Elisabeth, you should do the same thing xoxoxoxo Clarice


Sooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love Elisabeth


Love this Clarice.
The other day I was thinking of rolling up old sheet music and putting inside a big jar.
Have a great weekend,


Oh. I LOVE this.

On my old piano I have pages from an old hymnal rolled up tightly and secured with ribbon, scattered around in single glass candle holders.

Yours look so much more fun!

And I was just wondering what I could do today BESIDES dusting, cleaning, scrubbing..,


Dear Clarice,

Your paper candles look so charming! You created a lovely vignette!

Love, Paula

You do have a great "little-eye" my friend! How generous of you to share this clever idea with us. I appreciate it so much!! Of course I LOVE the creative recycling aspect of this idea.
P.S. You are sooo lucky to have a full room pantry...I am utterly green with envy but very happy for you :) xox


Love the paper candle idea!! I think I have the same candleabra! I have a pair that were my mother-in-laws. They are lovely!

Love it! That looks so pretty! I saw a similar thing on another blog but she used regular candlesticks at varying heights and she didn't use as much paper (Scrapbook paper I think-it was patterned). I love how yours is uneven - it looks so romantic!



Very clever ~ I love the whole combination of candleabra, chalkboard, and pumpkin!

Now how cute is that? Thanks so much for sharing Clarice :)

Have a blessed day!



Very Interesting! I Love that pretty silver candelabra!

What an inventive idea; I'd never have thought of this but really love how it looks.

Jacqueline Jaggers

oh what a fun dandy idea. In Puff the Magic Dragon there was a "little Jackie paper". I'm thinking a good storybook would be how Jackie paper made paper candles for candle holders. To imagine, is everything.


Very cute. Love, Mom


How cute & creative! Thank you for sharing your photos and the link!
Have a wonderful day Clarice!



Simply delightful! I love the paper candles --- so romantic and old-fashioned -- yet fresh and new! Thanks for sharing!



What an adorable idea! The curled paper looks like dripped wax.
