Beaded Tealight Christmas Candle HolderDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This little candle was going to be one of those candles made with a bath tissue roll but when I put the little tealight inside after finishing the 3rd round, I just had to make it a little candle holder as you see here! You could make several of these and put them around your house or give them as party favors! One more thing! You may not have noticed, this pattern matches the Little Fir Christmas Tree!
