Switching back to the fast-approaching Christmas (51 days to go... but who's counting?!) today I will present you with a beautiful set of candles - gel candles.

I fell in love with the idea of making gel candles - I am not using them to light them up as much... but as decor. They are a perfect medium to use colour and the perfect medium to suspend or drop all sorts of decorations in.

I was searching for an idea to make a gift for a good friend of mine for Christmas when I found a set of angel Christmas tree decorations in a store. Those heavy (gyps molded) ones - which I don't put them in my tree; its branches droop under their weight very quickly. However, I simply loved the cheerful cheruby faces and they made me smile. Being so have they were perfect candidates for the gel inserts (I'll tell you the story of the ornaments candle another time :)).

That's how my Angels came to life: one of them is happily playing the harp, the other one (pictured here) the concertina.

If you focus hard enough you will hear their song: Hark the herald angels sing!

It is one of my favourite Christmas decorations and it must be my friends' too - they haven't lit them yet :) and it's been 4 or 5 years already.

Do you have a favourite Christmas decoration? I'd love to hear your thoughts - thank you for sharing.
