My Remote Control Valentine Candles that I Designed!

12 years ago

Ohhhh, I am a happy camper today cause I took back those 3 remote control candles (3rd time around) & got their last set at Bed, Bath & Beyond. This time I had them put batteries in & try them out & they all worked! Yippee!

Remember my Tara candle (faux one w/timer) in my GWTW t'scape:

So tonight I printed out some images from a book I have (you could Google images if you want) ... & tried it out on the 3's a pic on my kitchen counter w/stove light on behind me:

Here's the same pic w/flash...that plate is a TS find awhile back ...just got 1 plate & `1 cup for $2 & it reminded me of some dishes I thought I saw on Holiday Forum:

Here's another w/just light behind me:

Here's the two tog:

My third pic I printed didn't come out very good for the shortest candle I'm just using these 2 candles. Here's how it looks w/the lights off:

I'm so excited about how they turned out! I printed them in color on a transparent plastic sheet wasn't self-sticking like the GWTW music I printed on. This brand I tried is Grafix Computer-Printable Transparent Plastic Sheets & sells for $7 for 6 sheets at Hobby Lobby...I used a 40% off coupon to help w/cost...they are 8-l/2 x 11 size per sheet.

I used double face tape to tape the transparency to the candle...the candles are waxy finish...I hope it won't leave a residue...if it does, they would usually be turned to the back somewhere anyway.

Anyway, a new idea! I'm going to add a few rose petals to this plate & call it done! Hope you enjoy! TFLookin'! Jeanne S.
