DIY: personal birthday candles

This week in escarabajos bichos y mariposas, I wrote about the candles I make for my parties. I like them being more personal. The ones in the pictures are from my son’s cowboy  birthday party. To make them long I use a wooden skewer, I attach the candle to the stick with some string and finally add a little object/goodie related to the party, in this case a blue star.


Very simple and I think it makes a difference. Kids love it!
