I solved this problem once and for all.... whew!
Ok, I cheated a little by having my husband cut the candles out of a wood dowel .. lol
But! -Now I can finally hang this candle holder out on the porch without having a melted mess on my hands....I won't even mention the time while moving to the new house when my husband put some candles in the truck while loading up the back...in July...
I think it will be fun to switch out the wood candles for holidays.
Spooky black grubby candles with torn stained
cheesecloth spiderwebs would be cute during Halloween!
